Geothermal

A&K Earth Movers have been involved in the Geothermal industry for over 30 years. A&K partnered up with Philip Petroleum to create Nevada’s first geothermal plant located at Desert Peak. Through the years we have been involved with dozens of projects with most of the geothermal energy leaders such as Ormat Energy Services, Enel North American and Magna Energy Corporation along with many others. A&K has built Drill Pads, Ponds, and Roads to Remote Sites, in addition to these we also complete other jobs such as movement of huge amounts of dirt and shot rock at the power plant sites. We are not limited to dirt work, doing all of the major reinforced concrete work to the piping and crushing of aggregates and even paving of an airstrip at the large remote plant in Central Nevada.

Wild Rose Project - Ormat Nevada, Inc.


A&K Earth Movers, Inc. has been award the earthwork and concrete packages for Ormat Nevada’s Wild Rose Geothermal Power Plant located in the Gabbs Valley, 20 Miles Northeast of Hawthorne Nevada. The civil scope of work includes the construction of the plant pad, well pads and access roads as well as the installation of the fire protection system. The concrete scope includes the construction of various air cooler and equipment foundation and footings which total 2,050 CY of 4,500 PSI. Pours range in size from 25 to 125 cubic yards per day. The concrete is being furnished locally by Hiskett and Sons concrete out of Fallon Nevada. To complicate the construction, logistics and schedule of material is a constant issue as all material vendors are 1 1/2 hours away. We are utilizing a BLM aggregate pit 3 miles from the site for the back fill and gravel materials and our water source is from a ranch well several miles from the site. Once all of the concrete has been poured, A&K will cover the entire plant site with aggregate base.
