Video – Arkansas power plant felled…

Implosion marks end for 75-year old power station.

A team comrosing representatives of Entergy, Bierlein and Dykon yesterday used explosives to destroy the major parts of the closed Couch Plant which dated to 1943 and was designed to burn fuel oil or gas at two generating units. Named after power company founder Harvey Couch, the plant has been out of commission since 2013.

The company is modernising its production, with new solar and gas-fired generating facilities and plans to take its remaining coal-burning plants out of commission.
