Warning Given Before CT Explosion at Kleen Energy Plant
Just before the CT explosion at the Kleen Energy Power Plant in Middletown, CT, a frantic warning about high levels of natural gas was given by a plant employee, urging workers to evacuate. Those warnings came to late, and, as a result, worker deaths and work injuries occurred when the Kleen plant exploded.
Prior to the CT Explosion, operators pumped natural gas into a manmade depression behind the main plant building, called the “power block building.” During this purge, welders were allowed to continue working in the area, despite OSHA guidelines which mandate that non-essential personnel be evacuated from the area during a purge.
