ASBESTOS & POWER PLANTS

Built by Central Hudson Gas and Electric in the 1930s and sold to Dynergy in the 1990s, the Danskammer Generating Station in Newburgh, New York is located along the Hudson River. Danskammer contained four generating units; two ran on oil, two on coal. The facility has been closed since March of 2013.

Power plants built during the 1930s almost always included a great deal of asbestos. Contractors and others involved in the construction of power plants often used asbestos to insulate high-temperature rooms and prevent fires.

Asbestos was often placed on:

  • PIPES
  • BOILERS
  • GENERATORS
  • OTHER MACHINERY

Asbestos “blankets” were also used as fire prevention tools. Workers in the Danskammer Station and other power plants were often exposed to asbestos while working in and maintaining the facilities.

If you or a family member developed mesothelioma or lung cancer after working in the Danskammer Generating Station or other New York job site that may have contained asbestos, please contact Williams Law Firm, P.C. to learn how our New York asbestos attorney may be able to help.
