Duneland Group completed pile staking work on the NIPSCO_Wheatfield_Pilings project, which began in January 2012 and is scheduled for completion in 2015.

NIPSCO representatives have been quoted as saying that the project is part of NIPSCO’s long-term environmental strategy, focusing on upgrading their system to meet new and upcoming environmental regulations. Specifically, the Schahfer project will improve local air quality by further reducing emissions associated with generating electricity. Equally important, this project contributes to the long-term sustainability of our region from an economic development standpoint.

These projects span multiple years and they’re providing nearly 1,000 jobs throughout that timeframe.The project has received other accolades but the safety performance to date is notable, better than the top 10 percent of companies with similar projects.
