EDL is proud to announce that its 32MW Brea Power Plant in Orange County, California has achieved a major safety milestone of five consecutive years without a significant safety incident, even through the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of yesterday, May 7, 2020, Brea Power Plant employees and contractors have worked 1,825 days without a significant safety incident, including a week in April, where 75 employees and contractors completed major plant maintenance safely and without incident, while practicing strict physical distancing.
Brea Power Plant General Manager Mike Pankratz said that their team strives for continuous improvement, especially in the safety and compliance aspects of the facility.
“Year after year, the team finds ways to improve on what and how things are being handled, which are reviewed during the monthly safety committee meetings.
“This kind of caring and dedication to ZERO Harm shows in our facility’s safety results.”
The Brea Power Plant is a large-scale electricity production facility that provides power to the City of Anaheim by capturing methane gas generated by the Orange County Waste and Recycling Olinda-Alpha Landfill and converting the methane into clean, renewable electricity.
