    Plant Legacy celebration in 2017


A Day in the History books December 31st, 2017

On December 31 at 7:14 PM Unit 2 disconnected from the system, this was the last unit running at the plant. Due to the EPA lawsuit, JOF will no longer run. The steam supply to Chemours is now being supplied by the Johnsonville CT site with one Heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and two backup Aux boilers they took over yesterday at 1:30 or so.

Johnsonville plant has been operating for 67 years. Unit 1 went in operation on Oct 27, 1951. Unit 1 was the one we had chosen to remove last, but yesterday at 1:30 PM the boiler had a tube rupture and had to be removed from service. So Unit 2 ended up being the last unit taken off.

Mr.Richard Mac Flowers a retiree pushed the trip button (65S) to remove it. Pictures below. Mr. Flowers along with his family were present, his son Richard also a retiree worked at JOF as a Switchboard operator.
