Considering the recent changes in power market pricing, regulatory, and environmental concerns, there is a growing number of coal-fired plants that will be decommissioned within the next several years. ASME ST LLC investigated what planning or guidance resources may be available to the owners and independent power producers who will go through the decommissioning process. The results of this investigation will help evaluate the need for new ASME standards or guidelines that pertain to coal-fired plant decommissioning.
