The Wait Is Over!

Recommended Posts

Finally the outage has started! Alternating 5 10s and 6 10s to start with. More over time will be coming in a month or two! What an awesome way to start a new year! Making that money. Saving for a house, possibly saving for a van, and saving for the one month vacation I'm taking when the baby is born.

I figure once I finish this hundred days I will take a short call through out June. Then get my lay off and hang out at home for July and August. Least that's the plan as of now. I know we got work for 5000 electricians in the Midwest starting in June. So hopefully I can catch the tail end of that in August.

Knowing where you'll be for only a couple of months is good in construction these days. I'll be starting a 3 month project next week which makes me feel good, but I'd rather have a 1 year project... :wink3: ...Oh well, take the good with the bad I guess.

 

Good luck Bud!

Thats all I'm doing now is industrial. At least if I can help it. Power houses and refineries. I know the gulf coast is about to boom with work also.

Its a steam power plant. Supposed to be the largest coal power plant in the south or something like that. Place is freaking enormous.

I wish it was the beer vat. It would probably smell better.

If you've never seen one, you will be awe stricken. My first gig as a service fitter was at Corn Products on the south side of Chicago. The company I worked for had a contract to maintain and repair all the cooling equipment on the grounds. All the equipment I worked on was to cool the electrical rooms. No comfort cooling whatsoever. They had a coal fired power plant to produce their own electricity and sold the extra back to Com Ed. Boilers that were 3 stories high and huge generators. As a greenhorn it was intimidating. As a journeyman, I wish I was still working there.

We started the pre outage work the week before Thanksgiving. Its been over a month and I am still in awe of this place. It is honestly Massive. Two enormous cooling towers. Four stacks for the four boilers. I know the boilers go from the 7th floor to the 13th floor. Each floor is between 15 and 20 feet tall. It is insane. Apparently once the two boilers the are being resurfaced go off line. We get to run temporary lighting inside them for the boiler makers to see by. Im excited as a kid in a candy store about this place.
