Implosions at coal-fired power plant delayed until April

Implosions at the 1,580 MW Mohave Generating Station’s boiler structures in Nevada have been delayed again.

According to the Mohave Valley Daily News, the implosions, which were originally scheduled for November 2011, had been rescheduled for Jan. 27. But a spokesperson with majority owner Southern California Edison was quoted as saying that the demolition was delayed until late April to dismantle turbines and other parts of the shuttered coal-fired power plant for salvage.

The Mohave plant has been idle since 2005 due to a lack of new water and coal agreements needed to proceed with emissions control upgrades.
