We operated the Tuttle Power Station, located at 9911 Perrin Beitel in San Antonio, Texas as an electrical power generation plant from 1960 to when it was deactivated in 2008. The Tuttle Power Station was powered by natural gas with a back-up fuel oil-firing capability. The Boiler and Turbine buildings for each unit, two cooling towers, two fuel oil storage tanks, other industrial electric power generation facilities, the electrical switchyard, and transmission facilities remain at the Site. The objective of this final phase of the project is to demolish selected facilities on the site and make the site available for future use by CPS Energy. The schedule duration of the project is expected to be approximately eleven (11) months.
Our main focus at CPS Energy is Safety - Demolition will include the removal of man-made improvements located above ground. Work will be performed by a qualified Contractor and skilled workers trained in the demolition/dismantling of these types of structures. In general, the work will involve either a controlled demolition method or the use of heavy equipment to bring the structures to the ground level for handling as either salvage or waste materials. Our contactor has obtained all required environmental permits and have previously worked with us on other demolition projects. The contractor will complete the demolition of the power plant boiler and turbine buildings and contents, the two cooling towers, and the two fuel oil storage tanks to the top of the concrete slabs. Work will be performed Monday through Friday during the hours of 6:30am to 5:00pm.
We realizes there may be a few unique problems with access, including high volume traffic on Perrin Beitel Road and limited roadways around the work areas. Therefore, the following criteria are being placed on vehicles that will be entering or leaving the site.
Additional Notes on Project:
Tuttle Plant demolition nears completion
Earlier this year, the last of the four boilers at our former Tuttle Plant was demolished. Since then, remediation work has been under way at the site, including filling in the cooling tower basins, and leveling and reseeding the property’s grounds. The entire project is expected to be complete by month’s end. We will continue to keep you posted on future developments related to the newly cleared Tuttle property.
We are committed to managing the dismantling of this facility in a safe and environmentally responsible manner and will work to minimize any impact to the surrounding area. We have selected an experienced and proven demolition contractor to perform the work and will maintain a presence to ensure compliance with the contract documents and good work practices.
