The Love Hydroelectric Generating Station, owned by the city of Vanceburg, Ohio, was prefabricated in France complete with all components, brought across the Atlantic and towed to Greenup Dam on the Ohio River. Sitework required precision blasting of the dam. Prefabrication cut two years off project completion. The project is an Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement nomination.
