DTE Peakers – Belleville, MI
General Project Scope:
DTE Energy contracted HOMRICH for the demolition of two peaker units located at Conner’s Creek Power Plant and five peaker units located at the Dayton Peaker site in Belleville, MI.
HOMRICH’s first objective was to move the peakers out of an active switch yard using a large tow vehicle in order to get them to an area where workers could safely work outside of the confines of the switchyard. The peakers were then lifted in the air with the aid of a 200-ton crane followed by a low boy trailer being backed under them. The peakers were lowered onto the trailer and securely strapped down for transportation to the HOMRICH yard several miles away.
Upon arrival to the yard, the peakers were lifted off of the trailer with the careful coordination of 4 excavators and belly cabling. After the synchronized lift, the low-boy was driven out from under the peaker and the unit was lowered to the ground.
The peakers were methodically dismantled in the yard, resulting in the salvage and sale of some components with the remainder being demolished and recycled as scrap metal.
