Tradinghouse Power Plant demolished

MCLENNAN COUNTY - Those in McLennan County might have heard a loud boom Friday morning as part of the Tradinghouse Power Plant came tumbling down.

The plant was built in the late 1960's, and one of the buildings was demolished by an implosion about 9 a.m. Friday morning

Luminant Energy, the property's owner shut the plant down in 2010 because the technology was too old to stay competitive.

They have already applied for permits to build a replacement plant on the site if they decide to do that at a later date.

Another unit will be demolished after the debris from Friday's implosion is cleaned up.
