Powerstation: part II

New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand, Oct 2012:  The New Plymouth Powerstation sold this week. Port Taranaki and Methanex have jointly purchased the decomissioned powerplant for 24 million. This will enable Port Taranaki to expand it’s operations in dry goods and log exports, while Methanex can develop the area the methanol producer already currently owns. Port Taranaki chief executive Roy Weaver said “most of the power station buildings would be demolished but the 198 metre chimney would remain”. The main turbine hall is also likely to remain if the port can find a customer who requires indoor storage facilities. Thank you Contact Energy for giving me access to the powerstation, and a big thanks to Paul for arranging this and showing me around the site…       Canon EOS 5D/Sigma 24-70 2.8/FujiFilm 645wi/FujiFilm Pro-400H 120
