3 ATCHAFALAYA CREW RESCUES DIVER By Brad Wallace On April 2, 2014 while completing dredging operations for the Jupiter Beach Restoration Project, the Atchafalaya crew received a distress call over the radio. A recreational diver had been missing off the coast of West Palm Beach Inlet for over four hours. After keeping a careful lookout, the Cashman crew spotted the man just before nightfall. They immediately contacted the U.S. Coast Guard and took swift action to recover the diver as quickly and safely as possible. Once the man was brought aboard the Atchafalaya, he was evaluated and reported safe and healthy, although he was extremely exhausted from his struggle to stay afloat. It was learned that after he was separated from his father s fishing boat, his spear gun had punctured his buoyancy compensator (floating device), and both of his fins had snapped while he was trying to keep himself afloat. The man was reunited with his father alongside the Atchafalaya while the U.S. Coast Guard helicopter that had been searching for him hovered above. Cashman employees Dan Hassett, Brad Wallace, and Pete Howell all played vital roles in the rescue. NEW BEDFORD PROJECT CELEBRATES 200+ DAYS WITHOUT LOST TIME INCIDENT The Cashman Weeks NB team recently achieved 200 days without a lost time incident on the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal project. To celebrate this safety achievement, the team had a catered lunch from Tennessee BBQ and received safetythemed t-shirts. Congratulations to the Cashman Weeks NB team for achieving this milestone and for their ongoing commitment to safety. IPC-LYDON PERFORMS MAJOR TURBINE OVERHAUL AT NARROWS STATION By John Burke In February 2014, Industrial Power Contractors Lydon (IPCL) was contracted to perform a major gas turbine generator overhaul at U.S. Power Generating Company s Narrows Station in Brooklyn, NY. IPCL provided supervision, millwright and boilermaker services, tools, and equipment to overhaul the gas turbine. Most turbine overhauls are done inside a power house in a somewhat controlled environment, but not this one. Narrows Station is a peaking power generation facility consisting of 16 23MW GE Frame 5 gas turbine generators mounted on barges moored on the Hudson River. With the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty as a backdrop, our team battled the elements. Led by Superintendent Kevin Donahue, IPCL worked in the dead of winter for 10 hours per day, six days per week for two months to overhaul the machine. Turbine overhauls involve the challenging work of disassembling large fitted bolts and heavy equipment and finessing the final alignment of the rotor to within a few thousandths of an inch tolerance. The entire process is a carefully orchestrated operation with every step strategically planned, executed, and documented. IPCL adhered to these strict project requirements while handling extreme weather conditions, an impressive endeavor that did not go unnoticed by our Customer and the Owner. With this job complete, the IPCL turbine team moved on to Memphis, TN where they overhauled three GE Frame 5 gas turbine generators for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Like Narrows Station, these units also were outdoors, presenting a new set of extreme weather challenges including tornadoes which the IPCL team was well-prepared to handle while completing the job efficiently and safely. 4 CASHMAN INK SUMMER

4 CASHMAN MARINE TERMINAL OPEN FOR OPERATION By Michelle Frawley & Lew Conley A One-Stop Solution for Safe, Affordable Sediment Management The Cashman Marine Terminal located in Elizabeth, NJ is a fullservice, permanent material processing facility providing an accessible, sustainable solution for managing contaminated sediment and soil. Cashman s goal is to provide Customers with a safe, environmentally sound solution at an affordable price. An Industrial Past Before becoming Cashman s sediment remediation facility, the Cashman Marine Terminal site had an industrial history dating back over a century. In 1883, the Borne-Scrymser Company opened a 14-acre site on South Front St. in Elizabeth along the Arthur Kill. The company refined and marketed lubricating oils for industries including textile mills, and it had a considerable export business. About 100 different grades of oil were manufactured. Nine years later, a fire destroyed many of the main buildings at the plant but left the oil storage tanks, filled with thousands of barrels of oil, untouched. The plant was rebuilt on an even larger scale, and the company became independent in Over the next 40 years, the company expanded its services to include products for leather tanning and dye tints for textiles. The company leased some of its bulk tanks to other companies for storing various petroleum and chemical products as well. In 1956, the name of the company was changed to Borne Chemical. When oil prices climbed sharply in the 1970s, the company began to sell recycled motor oil and auto transmission fluid. Ultimately, this process became unprofitable when oil prices dropped in the 1980s. The Road to Remediation The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) first identified a pollution problem at the Borne Chemical site in 1978 when Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were found in waste oil in the storage tanks. On February 15, 1980, Borne Chemical filed a petition for bankruptcy. Between 1983 and 1985, NJDEP negotiated with Borne Chemical s owners and waste generators to undertake removal and disposal of waste at the site. However, the parties were unable to reach an agreement due to Borne Chemical s financial condition. On April 4, 1985, the State formally requested authorization for $2,375,000 from the Spill Compensation Fund for the purpose of sampling, staging, removal, and disposal of hazardous waste materials at the site. The NJDEP issued a directive on July 7, 1987, naming 28 corporations it believed were responsible for removal of hazardous substances. By September of 1989, 18 companies entered into an agreement, entitled the Administrative Consent Order II, with NJDEP to comply with the directive. The site was designated as a Brownfields Development Area and was listed on NJDEP s Known Contaminated Sites List (KCSL). Cashman Assists with the Cleanup Cashman was contracted to work with potentially responsible parties (PRPs) to coordinate and complete the cleanup process. Remediation activities included initial light demolition in the site area, remediation of sediments affected by chemical processes, and the transportation and disposal of excavated materials. Cashman safely removed soils contaminated with PCBs, VOCs, and heavy metals all found at the site. Cashman also constructed a new 400-ft.-long bulkhead with a receiving platform. The Cashman Marine Terminal in Action All operations at the Cashman Marine Terminal are guided by Cashman s Safety Policy and overseen by a team of remediation experts. Sediment is delivered by barge to the facility, and the team selects the most appropriate processing method. Cashman is permitted to complete the following processing techniques at the facility: In-barge processing Pugmill processing Mechanical dewatering Additionally, the Cashman Marine Terminal holds the following permits: Waterfront Development Permit Air Permit Water Discharge Permit Water Quality Certificate Whenever possible, Cashman works to find beneficial reuses for the processed materials. To date, materials processed at the Cashman Marine Terminal have been reused for site remediation, landfill closures, brownfield development projects reuse, and mine reclamation projects. Customer Benefits The Cashman Marine Terminal meets the needs to a variety of Customers across the region. The facility has easy water access to New York and New Jersey ports as well as the Passaic River, Gowanus Canal, Newtown Creek, and various EPA Superfund sites. The facility accepts numerous material types, including: dredged sediments not suitable for Historic Area Remediation Site (HARS) placement, impacted sediments such as those from Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) and Superfund Sites. Because the Cashman Marine Terminal is a permanent facility, Cashman offers cost savings to Customers by being able to bundle projects, resulting in economies of scale. By having all permits in place for the facility, Customers can also optimize their project schedules. Additionally, risks and errors are minimized when working with Cashman s experienced team. Customers can rely on Cashman to understand the processing requirement for difference sediment types with regard to safety, health, sediment management, and sediment placement. The facility s flexible layout and central location enable Cashman to offer other convenient services as well. The Cashman Marine Terminal is a viable option for transporting equipment from land to water. Cashman also can perform heavy lifts from land to water at the site. 6 CASHMAN INK SUMMER Borne-Scrymser Co. Plant, 1889

5 By Brian Clark TDC (The Demolition Corporation, LLC) was subcontracted to perform selective structural demolition for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project under MassDOT Contract No TDC s scope of work includes the removal of concrete sidewalks, concrete bridge deck, steel stringers, steel floor beams, steel spandrel columns, and concrete crosswalls in the abutments and piers. These items will be replaced by the General Contractor to increase the structural and seismic capacity of the bridge. The iconic Longfellow Bridge crosses the Charles River and carries the MBTA Red Line and four lanes of vehicular traffic to connect Boston with Cambridge. Approximately 28,000 motor vehicles, 90,000 transit users, and numerous pedestrians and bicyclists cross the bridge each day. Built in 1908, the Longfellow Bridge was completely rehabilitated only once in its lifetime, in The current rehabilitation project is part of the Patrick Administration s Accelerated Bridge Program to improve structurally deficient bridges in the Lower Basin area of the Charles River. The goals of this project are to address the bridge s structural deficiencies, upgrade its structural capacity, and bring the bridge up to modern code to meet accessibility guidelines and make multi-modal access improvements. The project is divided in four stages to minimize the impact to the public: inbound to Boston vehicle traffic, MBTA inbound, MBTA outbound, and outbound to Cambridge vehicle traffic. The project includes 25 weekend diversions of the MBTA over the three-and-a-half-year schedule. During the weekend diversions, buses replace Red Line trains on the bridge. The first weekend diversion began in August 2013 with the removal of a portion of the inbound side of the bridge (known as D Line Demolition) adjacent the MBTA Reservation to allow the installation of a safety / debris fence prior to commencing Phase 1 construction. Over the course of four weekends, TDC removed approximately 1,800 linear feet of the bridge structure on the inbound roadway and complete the installation of the debris barrier. TDC completed extensive engineering, planning, scheduling of personnel, and coordination with the General Contractor to complete the work on diversion weekends. This work included the removal of fence, granite blocks concrete deck, stone ballast, structural steel, and pier concrete in fewer than 30 hours on each weekend. TDC finished six hours ahead of the General Contractor s schedule duration for the demolition activities each weekend, despite the challenges of limited access and work area on the bridge. TDC s trucking subcontractors provided support to ensure the continuous removal of concrete and steel debris from the bridge. Over the last two months, TDC has begun removing the existing inbound bridge structure. The bridge demolition sequence includes removing the sidewalk and overhang first, followed by the roadway section, then the structural steel and spandrels down to the original arches, which are to remain. Demolition over the piers is performed in conjunction with the span removal. To remove the bridge in a safe and efficient manner, TDC added new equipment to the fleet: a Gradall XL5200, CAT321D LCR zero radius excavator, CAT 236B skidsteer, and a CAT 924K loader. Each excavator is equipped with a bucket, grapple, and hydraulic hammer attachments for any facet of demolition required. The use of the Gradall is required to comply with the restrictions of the MBTA s Working Envelope. To prevent the boom of the machine from entering the Working Envelope, the Gradall is outfitted with crane instrumentation that will monitor the boom angle and length through a mini crane reel mounted on the boom. Due to the limited work area on the bridge, a CAT 321 excavator featuring a compact radius design is being utilized for its minimal tail swing and hydraulic capacity. Overcoming project challenges and continuously coordinating logistics, TDC has excelled as one of the top subcontractors on the project, beating schedule durations and working safely with zero recordable or lost time injuries.

6 FORE RIVER VENTURES, LLC ACQUIRES STAKE IN C0-ENERGY AMERICA By Trevor Childs Fore River Ventures, LLC, a Cashman-backed search fund comprised of Trevor Childs and Rob McMenimon, secured its first equity investment in October 2013 Co-Energy America. product and allowed to go to waste. Onsite CHP or Cogen systems are much more efficient. They generate electricity and capture the heat through heat exchangers, using it as a source for hot water, heating, and even cooling. A CHP unit runs on a continuous basis, constantly generating onsite power and thereby avoiding the need to purchase roughly 30-50% from the grid. The heat by-product is also constantly being generated, so finding sites that can use the heat is the key to efficiency. Co-Energy America s CHP units are over 85% efficient, which means that 85% of the energy value can be captured from one unit of fuel. Key Benefits of Cogeneration Since then, the Fore River Ventures team, with ongoing support from Jay Cashman, Inc., has been growing Co-Energy America while still searching for additional distributive energy concepts and companies to buy. Who is Co-Energy America? Since 1998, Co-Energy America has been a leading developer of packaged combined heat and power systems (CHP), specializing in the design, manufacture, installation, and maintenance of 60 kw to 1 MW units. Co-Energy America CHP systems are designed around natural gas-fired reciprocating engines. This prime mover of the CHP system is a durable, reliable, and efficient industrial engine with low fuel consumption and low emissions. What is CHP or Cogen? The process of generating electricity also generates heat. In traditional simple-cycle power plants, heat is treated as a by- Clean, Environmentally Friendly Energy. All of Co-Energy America s cogeneration units run on natural gas, which is the cleanest fossil fuel, helping to qualify this equipment as an alternative energy solution. Like wind and solar energy, Co-Energy America s systems generate alternative energy credits. Also, the systems help facilities reduce their carbon footprints. Cogeneration Reduces Utility Bills. Generating on-site power effectively avoids buying power from the grid and all of the associated transmission and distribution costs. A CHP system typically produces a two- to four-year payback on the project followed by roughly 10 additional years of savings. Reliable Onsite Energy. Our CHP systems can be designed for backup capability meaning the facility can operate the Cogen when the grid is down. Given the recent increase and severity of storms, many sites are looking for resilient backup power. Co-Energy America s Continued Success and Growth Co-Energy America has designed and installed over 60 cogeneration units at schools, hotels, apartment buildings, assisted living facilities and other commercial properties totaling nearly 10 MW of continuous power throughout New England. Co-Energy America continues to operate and maintain all of these installations in addition to a growing service division for other CHP systems installed from Maryland to Maine. Co-Energy America recently signed a multi-year service agreement with the Harpoon Brewery in Boston and Avon Old Farms School in Connecticut, and they have been growing in the Tristate Area thanks to a new office in New York. Co-Energy America also provides consulting and troubleshooting services nationally. Join the Energy Revolution Co-Energy America always is looking for sites with large and constant heat and electric demands specifically sites with thermal usage or heating needs greater than 4,000 therms / month. Typical locations include: Apartments, Co-ops, and Condominiums Assisted Living Facilities Nursing Homes Senior Housing Colleges and Institutions Schools / Community Centers Hospitals Hotels Athletic Clubs Industrial Facilities Prisons A cogeneration system uses less fuel to produce the same amount of energy, saving money and helping to protect the environment. Co-Energy America can support a cogeneration project from beginning to end, or jump into a project at any stage. We also can finance projects through power purchase agreements. If you have an idea for a site, gather the past 12 months of energy costs for Co-Energy America to assess the feasibility of the site. This includes itemized utility bills (gas and electric) and any costs associated with backup power. Co-Energy America offers finder s fee should a project go forward.

8 HUDSON RIVER DREDGING PROJECT: ISTHMUS TRANSLOADING AREA (ITA) By Bill Campbell Cashman Dredging has been issued a change order to the ongoing General Electric (GE) Hudson River contract 42A for the design, construction, and operation of a transloading facility (called the Isthmus Transloading Area or ITA) in the town of Fort Edward, NY. The purpose of this facility will be to transfer contaminated sediment dredged from a landlocked section of the Hudson River (a portion of the river between two dams which is not accessible by boat) across a spit of land to hopper barges staged in the Champlain Canal. Loaded hopper barges will be transported to GE s existing Fort Edward Processing Facility for ultimate disposal. Cashman originally proposed the concept of this facility as an alternative to the construction of a dedicated mechanical dewatering and water treatment plant. GE, the EPA, the New York State Canal Corporation, and other governing agencies recognized that the transloading facility concept would provide an improved solution to management of the landlocked sediments by eliminating the need to truck the dewatered sediments to the existing processing facility for loading onto railcars. The notice to proceed for this work was received in mid- February 2014 and start of construction proceeded almost immediately thereafter. The construction of the facility had to be substantially complete by May 1, 2014, the date the New York State Canal Corporation began flooding the canals for the navigational season. In order to gain full access to the site, the first task was to construct an earthen embankment, or causeway, across the drained canal. This work was followed by clearing, grubbing, and excavation of a 400-ft.-long embayment to the canal to provide berthing for the hopper barges outside of the existing navigational channel limits. The southernmost portion of the cut consisted chiefly of shale bedrock, which was excavated with a 13,000-lb. hoe ram. The northern half of the excavation was comprised almost entirely of silty soils, which had to be sloped back significantly and dressed with a thick course of armor stone. The remaining construction activities consisted of preparation of sub grade, placement of geomembrane liner, installation of decant and contact stormwater drainage systems, forming and placement of a 65-ft. by 50-ft. concrete slab with monolithic curbs for the containment of sediments, erection of spill pans, and fender and bollard installation. Once dredging activities begin in the landlocked area, the transloading of sediment will be performed utilizing two CAT MH3059 material handlers, one stationed on either side of the containment slab. Each MH3059 will be outfitted with a 2-cy TGS level cut bucket. The southernmost MH3059 will offload the material from modular barges in the landlocked portion of the river and place the material within the limits of the containment area. The northern MH3059 will then take the material and load the canal side hopper barges. Dredge water will be decanted from the river side barges directly to the canal side hopper barges by means of a 6-in. hydraulic pump and hose system. Storm and leachate water collected from the containment slab also will be pumped directly to the canal side barges through a separate 4-in. sump pump. Two 21,000-gallon-capacity frac tanks have been mobilized to the site for contingency capacity in the event that barges are not available in the canal. To support the decant operations and for general operation and maintenance activities, the site is equipped with a Grove RT770 rough terrain crane. The ITA became operational the week of June 23, CASHMAN INK SUMMER

9 STERLING EQUIPMENT UPDATES By Dave Clark New Equipment Over the last several months, Sterling Equipment, Inc. has bought and built new equipment to expand the fleet and take on new projects. Sterling s newest equipment purchase is a Sennebogen 880 Material Handing Machine with an 80- ft. reach and a 12-cubic-yard (cy) hydraulic clamshell bucket. Sterling purchased the machine in Charleston, SC and transported it by barge to Staten Island. The Sennebogen currently is mounted on a 200 ft. x 56 ft. x 13 ft. spud barge and is offloading material dredged from New York and New Jersey Harbor. This material is being loaded directly into dump trucks for upland disposal at the offload facility. Sterling currently is in negotiations for a multiyear contract for this operation, which is expected to be finalized within the next several weeks. In a continued expansion of its dredging fleet, Sterling is building another 5,000-yard dump scow at St. John Shipbuilding. The 267 ft. x 54 ft. x 23.8 ft. barge is the same design as the M.E.R.C. Shevlin and is scheduled to be completed in July This will be Sterling s first dump scow to be built with deck compression plates to reduce the midsection bending caused by heavy dredge materials. Other Projects Strong Island Crane Barge Update In 2013, Sterling undertook an innovative project connecting two ex oil barges together to create the 269 ft. x 108 ft. x 17 ft. spud barge, the Strong Island. The culmination of this project was installing Sterling s 750-ton Manitowoc 4600 Ringer onto the barge to give it a more stable operating platform as well as sufficient deck space for boom storage. Currently, the crane and barge are on a one-year contract with the Tappan Zee Bridge project, along with 12 other Sterling barges. Along with equipment barge, tug, and heavy civil equipment rentals, Sterling also transports various cargoes along the East Coast and Gulf Coast. One of the most recent projects involved loading a 650-ton Travel Lift at a shipyard in Bridgeport, CT and transporting it to May Shipyard in Staten Island, NY. 16 CASHMAN INK SUMMER
