Adamo Group’s Ohio Implosion Goes Off Perfectly

Commissioned in 1953, the Muskingum River Power Plant Units 1-4 were among the oldest active in the United States. The Adamo Group has been meticulously dismantling the plant since mid-2015 with an emphasis on maximizing the recycling of as many materials as possible. The planning and execution of the implosion of the Unit 1-4 boiler buildings had to be precise so as not to damage the live switch yard, less than 160 feet away. On November 12, 2017, Adamo Group safely brought down the buildings in seconds after years of planning their removal. The implosion went perfectly and Adamo Group’s effort to prevent damage to the live switch yard was successful.
