Value on Display...Every Day - Emergency Outage and Re-Start at Oregon Power Plant

October 29, 2013
On July 1, 2013, a water hammer caused significant damage to a cold reheat line at the Boardman Power Plant, in Boardman, Oregon.  The subsequent damage forced an emergency shut-down of the plant, costing the owner, Portland General Electric, significant amounts of money for every day the plant was off-line.  Initial assessments indicated that this would be a 3 to 4 month project.  But the craft professionals from Oregon's Building Trades Unions completed the job in 30 days with no injuries.
