Here is your regular scheduled update from the Holly Plant Decommissioning Project Team:
Removing asbestos is complicated. It’s not like removing dust off your mother’s picture frame. Prior to removing asbestos, the TRC team has to construct scaffolding all around the structures that contain asbestos. If you look close below, you’ll see thin metal piping that looks like a temporary painters platform.
As a reminder, all power is turned off on Holly Units 2 and 3. Therefore, all of us have to climb up and down the stairs to each job site. We are burning a lot of calories ..
You can see that some of the pipes that have asbestos coating are quite high. Therefore, the platforms need to be raised so that we can safely and carefully remove the asbestos.
This is the bottom of a scaffolding platform.
Luckily, the scaffolding gets a lift to each job site. These pipes are too heavy to travel by stairs.
