Over the past few weeks, the project team has been working on the following:
- GT Complex demolition has recently progressed nicely with only B33 GT4 and Fuel Treatment Building remaining to be removed
- Cleanout has continued in B6 OPS and B26 EPS and are now 85 to 90% complete
- B26 EPS overall mechanical demolition of engines and auxiliaries is approximately 25% completed at this time (E1, E2, E3, & E4)
- B6 OPS overall mechanical demolition of engines and auxiliaries is approximately 18% completed at this time
The project plan for the next few weeks includes:
- B7 GEC building demolition of switchgear and building will commence after B33 GT4 demolition activities are completed in early April
- B6 Old Power Station (OPS) mechanical demolition (i.e., D2 & D3, D14 & D15 engines) is ongoing
- B26 EPS mechanical demolition (E1, e2, E3 & E4) is ongoing
When demolition is occurring our neighbours and passersby may notice the following disturbances:
- Demolition noise from the construction equipment, which will be mitigated by limiting work to daytime production hours only (ie. 7:00am to 4:00pm)
- Localised airbourne dust, which will be mitigated by mist mechanisms and stockpile covers
- Increased truck traffic along Cemetery Road to remove building materials and engine components, which will be mitigated by flag men while trucks enter and exit the demolition site.
SAFETY & SIGNAGE
Project safety signage and project barriers are in place surrounding all demolition and work/project areas. All project areas are limited to the BELCO Serpentine Road campus only.
We ask our neighbours, passersby and campus visitors/guests to observe all safety signage and to not enter or attempt to enter any marked project areas in order to protect the safety of everyone.
