Work Continues for Adamo Group in Ohio

May 19, 2018

Work continued for the Adamo Group at the site of the former Muskingum River Power Plant near Beverly, Ohio. At 6:30am on Friday May 18th, 2018, the Adamo Group brought down the hyperbolic cooling tower and adjacent stack with a series of controlled implosions. The cooling tower and stack began operation in 1968 and were part of Unit 5 of the former coal fed power plant.

At its peak, the plant ran 6500 tons of coal through the plant a day. The stack stood at 825 feet (nearly 70 stories tall) while the hyperbolic cooling tower was 370 feet tall and 395 feet diameter at the base. The cooling tower had once held 2.9 million gallons of water.

Adamo Group used a series of charged explosives to bring down the two structures safely, landing precisely where they had predicted.
