Second Tradinghouse Power Plant boiler demolished

MCLENNAN COUNTY - Those who live in McLennan County might have heard a loud boom Friday morning as the second boiler of the Tradinghouse Power Plant came crashing down.

The plant, which began operations in the 70s, was imploded about 10 a.m. The first of the two boilers was demolished in March.

Luminant Energy closed the plant in 2010, saying the technology was too old to stay competitive.

There are plans to build a new natural gas plant on the site, but a spokesman for Luminant says that is only possible if market conditions improve.
