ENGIE Hazelwood recently held a Community Open House event to inform the community of Power Station demolition activities. Those in attendance joined in the conversation with subject matter experts from ENGIE and the principal demolition contractor, Delta Group.
Information stations were set up to allow attendees to follow the journey from the decommissioning of the Power Station to the commencement of demolition. A ‘Hazelwood Demolition Project – Demolition Timeline’ booklet was provided to attendees to help them gain a greater understanding of the first five sequences of the demolition scope. Interest was also shown in the process for asbestos removal and containment in the approved onsite Hazelwood Asbestos Containment Area.
The materials handed out on the evening can be found below.
Delta Group, a Victorian company with 40 years’ experience as a demolition contractor, has been awarded the contract to complete demolition activities at the site of the former Hazelwood Power Station and Mine.
