Here is your regular scheduled update from the Holly Plant Decommissioning Project Team:
Did you know that part of the project specifications is dust control? We don’t want dust or other particulates to leave the site. This is a lot of work but very worthwhile since the workers like working with clean metal. The workers used a hose connected to a fire hydrant to wash Holly Unit 1 from top to bottom. The following pictures illustrate the clean-up and wash down of the boiler area and some of the workers beginning the initial removal of steel from the Holly Plant.
Here are the workers picking up debris before the wash down.
It’s not rain but here comes the water!
A worker is sweeping the water into a trench. The water will be treated for particulates later.
This worker wants to do a good job and is very efficient!
These workers are pumping the water from the trench into the tanker for treatment.
A welder begins the initial removal of steel from the Holly Plant.
As you can see, the acid and caustic tanks used to purify water were opened to inspect the internals and verify that these containers are actually empty.
