Power Plant Decommissioning

Power Plant Decommissioning

U.S. nuclear power plants are aging.  According to the Department of Energy, the average age of the 5,800 power plants in operation is about 40 years, and many them are outdated, environmentally unfriendly, costly to operate and maintain, and unprofitable.  Though nuclear power is inexpensive to produce and emits no greenhouse gases, and nuclear facilities account for about 20% of the power generated in the U.S., there is increasing pressure to make relicensing requirements more stringent and to shut down aging nuclear reactors. Also, the EPA and state agencies are imposing tougher regulations, and many of these facilities would require expensive retrofits to come into compliance.   As a result, many operators are deciding that extending the life of near-obsolete nuclear power plants no longer makes good business sense, and are opting to decommission, dismantle and/or demolish their facilities.  


Though decommissioning can be a complex and expensive task, the cost can be comparatively small compared to retrofit, and recovered scrap and salvage can offset a good portion of these costs.  Some states have established objectives shifting toward green alternatives such as wind, solar, geothermal and biofuel, and plant operators are exploring ways to convert existing facilities to renewable sources following decommissioning.  


R. Baker & Son is a seasoned contractor offering total power plant decommissioning services, from consultation to decommissioning plan development, and we have numerous safe, successful decommissioning projects under our belts.  We provide complete demolition, selective dismantling, and rigging and removal of power plant equipment, as well as asset recovery and used equipment sales.  Power plant decommissioning is strictly regulated, particularly so in nuclear facilities, and R. Baker & Son operates in strict 100% compliance.
