Farrat CR60 pads will be used to support emergency spillway bridge slabs to allow for bridge movement

Mount Coffee HPP will be the largest power generating facility in Liberia and will operate as part of the CSLG Power Network, which will be used for interchange of power with neighbouring countries. 

The rehabilitation project, which has been identified by the Government of Liberia as the cornerstone of its objective to expand access to sustainable, affordable, and reliable electricity for its citizens, is located approximately 27 kilometers (km) northeast of Monrovia in Montserrado County, Liberia. The plant was originally designed as a run-of-river scheme with the provision for six units, however the powerhouse was only constructed for four units. The original four units will be rehabilitated using Francis turbines supplied by Voith Hydro (alongside generators and associated electro-mechanical equipment for the powerhouse).

Farrat CR60 pads will be used to support emergency spillway bridge slabs to allow for bridge movement. The first pads were required on site within 3 weeks of the order being placed with Farrat. Needless to say that Farrat delivered ahead of schedule.
