NRG’s Bowline Generating Station is located on the Hudson River waterway in West Haverstraw, New York. After a major hurricane resulted in violent swells and the erosion of the Minisceongo Creek bed, NRG called on BOND to cut out and re-route two critically compromised high-pressure natural gas lines that were left unsupported and exposed in an environmentally-sensitive area. BOND’s team provided civil construction services that facilitated the support of 575 feet of 24-inch and 16-inch asbestos-coated pipes, once buried along the creek bed.
