This former coal-fired thermal electric generating station, once the largest in North America, is located along the north shoreline of Lake Erie near the Town of Nanticoke in Haldimand County, Ontario. It consists of eight (8) generating units that had a full capacity output of 4000 MW, which were constructed in phases between 1967 and 1978, and decommissioned in 2013.
The powerhouse is the main building on site where the electrical generating equipment is housed along with the associated boilers, coal handling equipment, pulverizers, turbines and generators. On the south side of this building, there are large steel framed structures that support the precipitators and ductwork, which connected to two (2) – 650 foot reinforced concrete chimneys.
Delsan-A.I.M. is currently decommissioning and demolishing the Nanticoke Generating Station under contract with Ontario Power Generation. In undertaking all our contracts, but more specifically with this large scale, multi-year project, the safety of the workers and the public, as well as the protection of the environment are our primary concerns. All the work on site, therefore, is being carefully planned and engineered.
