Warrick County Power Plant Deals With Major Setbacks After Coal Silo Collapses

A Warrick County Power Plant is dealing with some major setbacks after a coal silo collapsed Sunday.

The incident has caused severe damage to the F.B. Culley Power Plant owned by Vectren.

Two of the main units, Culley Two and Three, were out of commission for most of Sunday. Culley Two was back up and running by 4 a.m. Monday.

Culley Three that produces 270 megawatts of electricity will not be able to run for the next four to five weeks.

Vectren says if it continues to have problems, it will turn to Alcoa and other power plants in the tri-state for assistance.
