Demolition Underway at Retired Brayton Point Power Station
Somerset, MA – Commercial Development Company Inc. (CDC) has announced that demolition is currently underway at the retired Brayton Point Power Station in Somerset, Massachusetts. Once the largest coal-fired power plant in New England, Brayton Point Power Station was purchased in early 2018 by Brayton Point LLC, an affiliate of CDC.
Since the acquisition, Brayton Point LLC has invested significant resources into repositioning the 307-acre retired power plant site including a plan to transform the former power plant site into a commerce center campus for new and sustainable utilization. Repositioning activity has already included asbestos abatement, environmental remediation, demolition permitting work, and extensive redevelopment planning.
An important step in the process is structure demolition, which was initiated on September 24, 2018 and is anticipated to be completed later in 2019. Contractors working for Brayton Point LLC are currently on-site demolishing fuel oil tanks and power plant buildings. Preparation and permitting efforts for demolition of other power plant structures are also underway. Planning and coordination with local authorities will continue as this work proceeds.
As demolition in large areas is completed, those areas will then be restored in preparation for new development projects which will be announced at a later date.
