Nuclear Power Plant, Genoa, WI
No longer economically viable, the 50-megawatt nuclear energy power plant, originally utilized by the federal government as a demonstration facility, was forced to close down. After 30 years of not producing power, EIG was retained to perform the demolition work. Over the course of two years, EIG demolished the reactor, turbine building, turbine foundations and all underground utilities associated with plant operations. Additionally, EIG removed internal components and performed the demolition of multiple structures, including the 350’ stack (via non-explosive methods), waste water treatment facility and underground utilities.
