Engineers began pouring concrete Thursday to brace a damaged coal silo at the Morgantown Energy Associates plant on Beechurst Avenue. Once the 130-foot-tall structure is stabilized, it can be dismantled, according to MEA officials.
Worker Ronald E. Wolff was killed March 1 when the interior of the silo collapsed, causing coal and debris to fall on him.
Following the accident, WVU s PRT track from Beechurst to Engineeringsome of which runs within 300 feet of the plantwas closed. It will reopen Monday.
MEA is a 66-megawatt operation that produces electricity for Allegheny Energy and steam heat for WVU . The majority owner is Dominion Energy.
Cause of the collapse remains under investigation.
