Here is your regular scheduled update from the Holly Plant Decommissioning Project Team:
Holly 1 is asbestos free. The team has finally finished removing all the asbestos during this portion of the abatement. We have started the removal process of the steel throughout Holly 1.
In the image below, the asbestos and aluminum covering have all been removed from the pipes.
View from below of the previous image.

Below are steel pipes that the welder has removed.
What once housed the feed water heaters is now an empty space.
The deaerator no longer has its asbestos jacket on.
The boiler piping is ready to be removed. Note, the asbestos wrapping around the valves for complete unassembled removal.
As you can see, the plastic barrier around Holly 1 has been removed due to completing the asbestos abatement.
