This Abandoned New York Power plant was built in the late 1940’s when the during a time when the hunger for electricity was rapidly increasing. The original design consisted of two boilers providing steam to a single turbine unit.
A few short years later two additional boilers were added to power a second turbine giving the plant a total output of 70MW. In the late 1980’s there was talks of converting the plat from coal burning into garbage burning however with a 50 million dollar price tag, it didn’t make it passed the planning stage.
By 2000 area residents were complaining about the increasing emissions from the plant. The plant owners blamed the increased emissions on high levels of sulfur in the coal & a state inspector was sent out & determined that the emissions violated federal standards.
Today the plant sits slowly decaying without a shred of hope of ever being powered back up again.
I spent far too much time trying to figure out what the hell this thing is. It was found at the very bottom level of an old abandoned pwer plant, closed almost 2 years ago. If anyone has knowledge of the inner workings of a coal power plant, I would love to know!! https://www.youtube.com/c/Freaktography www.freaktography.com www.instagram.com/freaktography www.facebook.com/freaktography www.twitter.com/freaktography

This was a very cool find in this old abandoned power plant. As RiddimRyder and I made our way in and navigated our way around in the dark, the first spot we came to was this section with two old vintage Fire Extinguishers on wheels.

In January 2014 I took a self portrait in an abandoned power plant in Toronto, Ontario. The power plant RiddimRyder and I explored this past weekend had many similarities to that plant in Toronto, so I decided to duplicate that original picture. You can find that original photo from 2014 at this link below… https://www.freaktography.com/abandoned-power-plant/
“Next motherfu#@er’s gonna get my metal” I just knew when I found this giant cast iron tool that I would spend at least 10 minutes taking pictures with it!
