Boilers to be imploded at Mohave Generating Station

Piece by piece, the Mohave Generating Station across the Colorado River from Bullhead City is disappearing. For 40 years, the boiler structures could be seen for miles.

The 1,580-megawatt coal-fired facility in Laughlin closed on New Year’s Eve 2005, and demolition began in late 2009.

The 500-foot smoke stack was demolished in March.

Unlike the stack implosion, Southern California Edison said the implosion of the boiler structures will not be a public event but will be visible for miles around.

The boiler structures will be imploded simultaneously and will fall toward the east, according to the Mohave Daily News. The date and time of the implosion will be announced in advance.
