General Project Scope:

HOMRICH was engaged to perform decontamination and demolition of the 1,300-megawatt Colbert Fossil Plant. A significant portion of the work performed was the decontamination and demolition of the Turbine Hall. This work included constructing containment around multiple levels of the Turbine Hall, abating asbestos, mercury, oils, and universal wastes. Once the decontamination work was complete, dismantlement of six turbine units commenced with each turbine being meticulously dismantled with torches. TVA rigging and crane procedures were adhered to during this process with the Turbine Hall overhead crane being utilized for the dismantlement. This work included crane picks in excess of 150,000 lbs.
