Abbott Power Plant Stack to be Dismantled Ahead of Gas Boiler Upgrades
CHAMPAIGN, IL – Abbott Power Plant’s 77-year-old south energy stack will be taken down in much the same way it went up, one piece at a time. Crews will begin preparations to disassemble the 197-foot concrete stack this week, with work anticipated for completion during the summer.
Abbott is replacing the recently decommissioned stack and two 1970s boilers with two new low-emission, high-efficiency gas boilers. For more information see the release.
