Over the past few weeks, the project team has been working on the following:

  • B4 GT2 Building above grade superstructure and turbine demolition at 50% (plus) complete
  • B8 Yorkshire Switchgear above grade building demolition is complete
  • B26 – EPS diesel engine mechanical disassembly at approximately 15% complete
  • Building cleanout in B2 Training Centre , B6 OPS and B4 GT2 are 95% complete
  • Oil removal from internal pipework ongoing in B6 OPS from D14 & D15 mechanical systems presently to allow demolition of mechanical systems

The project plan for the next few weeks includes:

  • B7 GEC building demolition of switchgear and building
  • B6 OPS demolition of west end of building (ie D14 & D15 engine bays) following completion of interior mechanical demolition

    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.

    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.
