Port Everglades smokestacks demolished

ADVERTISEMENT

The Florida Power and Light smokestacks in Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale were demolished on July 16. Described as “stacks” and marked with four small circles on NOAA nautical chart 11470, the red and white towers have aided mariners entering the port since the 1960s.


 

The four stacks and large boilers were demolished by explosives to clear the area for a new, natural gas-fired plant projected to begin commercial operation in June 2016.



Visit The Triton YouTube channel, tritonpubs for video of the FPL demolition from our photographer Capt. Tom Serio. Demolition begins at about one minute into the video.
