BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - PG&E announced today that the California Public Utilities Commission has granted the utility permission to move forward with the remaining demolition at the Kern Power Plant site, according to Katie Allen from PG&E.
The remaining work will be conducted by Silverado Contractors, Inc.
Allen says PG&E is dedicated to fully and safely cleaning up the Kern Power Plant Site. She said Silverado Contractors was selected based on its extensive power plant and heavy industry demolition experience, as well as its strong safety record.
PG&E says large equipment will be used to dismantle the remaining debris, which is expected to take about 10 weeks to complete. After the completion of the demolition, soil remediation will begin, which PG&E says will likely take several years.
The blast back on August 3, 2013 at the Kern Power Plant left 43-year-old Jerry Wood seriously injured.
