Here is your regular scheduled update from the Holly Plant Decommissioning Project Team:
We are still working on removing the Holly 1 Turbine. This week’s news is about the removal of the low pressure turbine cover. The following images show how the TRC, LVI, and Austin Energy team work together to remove this portion of the turbine.
The low pressure turbine cover is being prepared for removal.
The team lifts the low pressure turbine cover.
A worker is directing the low pressure turbine cover for transfer to the truck bay.
The low pressure turbine cover is lowered into the truck bay.
This is the low pressure turbine and its inner casing.
A welder is cutting piping connected to the generators’ cooling system.
This is what is left of the gas inlet piping system that delivered natural gas to each one of the boilers.
Note: If you look closely, the shearer’s cutting motion created a crimping effect on the 4 pipes below.
This is piping from the natural gas delivery system dumped into a roll-off for shipment.
Here are parts of the foundation for the natural gas delivery system ready for removal.
