Tynes Bay Conducting “Steam Blow” Exercise

October 1, 2015

The Ministry of Public Works said they “would like to advise the public that as part of the new turbine installation, the Tynes Bay Waste to Energy Facility will be conducting a ‘Steam Blow’ exercise on October 12th, 13th and 14th 2015 between the hours of 4:15 to 5:15 pm each day.”

A spokesperson said, “The purpose of the exercise is to clean the new turbine piping of any foreign materials that may be left over from construction by blowing through a large volume of high pressure steam.

“Each “Steam Blow” will last between five to 15 minutes and will produce a loud noise of rushing air and a white water vapour plume in the general area of the facility.

“Residents and members of the public within the general area should not be alarmed when these events occur.

“The Ministry of Public Works wishes to thank the public for their corporation while this critical work takes place and apologizes for any inconvenience it may incur. “
