After nearly four-months of halting work the decommissioning project has resumed on the Navajo Generating Station near Page. Demolition is ongoing on unit three, including the ten story-high conveyor. Last week, the holding tanks were demolished as part of the process. Decommissioning is now ramping up following the COVID-19 suspension of work. Within a week or two, an estimated 100 more workers are expected to arrive. SRP Investment Recovery is in the process of selling and shipping NGS tools, supplies and scrap. In coming weeks, the colossal rows of tall, heavy shelving in the large NGS warehouse will be dismantled, packed and shipped. The former coal-fired plant closed for good in November of 2019. Demolition and decommissioning the plant will run until 2021.
