Here is your regular scheduled update from the Holly Plant Decommissioning Project Team:
The team has begun working on removing the steam turbines. There were no buyers available for any of the steam turbines so the team has initiated a scrapping process. So, the workers are cutting the steam turbine’s steel to ship in transportable pieces.
This is the Holly 1 Steam Turbine.
This is the steam inlet and control portion of the turbine.
The welder is starting to remove the steam chest from the turbine.
Parts of the turbine that have been removed are placed in the truck bay area for pickup and shipping.
