AEP Rockport Project

AEP RockportGribbins Fills Tall Order in Rockport

Standing 1,038 feet high, the central smokestack at the American Electric Power (AEP) Rockport generating station is not only the tallest in Indiana, it’s also among the world’s tallest. The Spencer County generating station is the site of a current project led by Evansville Project Manager, Aubrey Forrester.

Scope and Timeline of Project

Forrester, along with key field employees, Carl Honeycutt and Demetrious Tinsley, led their Gribbins team in the removal and replacement of insulation and lagging on 42” diameter high energy piping and the associated fittings from March through early June 2017.  The Gribbins crew continues to work on the AEP Rockport site for ongoing maintenance needs.

Safety: Above All at Gribbins

In keeping with the Gribbins commitment to safety, Forrester notes the crew members are required to wear half mask respirators, hard hats, safety glasses, steel toe boots, and safety harnesses. As far as the rewards experienced, Aubrey Forrester succinctly states these positives: “Completing the project safely, under budget, and installing quality work.”
