BROWNFIELD UPDATE: Brayton Point Power Station

VIDEO: Demolition Continues with Felling of Power Plant Chimneys

Demolition continues at the former Brayton Point Power Station!  Once the largest fossil fueled power plant in New England, today the site is being transformed into  a world-class logistical port and support center designed for renewable energy and the emerging US offshore wind energy sector. 

In January 2018, ELT purchased and assumed environmental liabilities and the former power plant (via Brayton Point LLC). Since the ownership transfer, our team has been working to reposition the brownfield site for sustainable redevelopment - remediation, demolition, and extensive redevelopment planning. The two 500-ft cooling towers at Brayton Point are slated for controlled implosion on April 27, 2019.

BROWNFIELD UPDATE: Former GM Janesville Assembly Plant

Environmental Cleanup at Former GM Janesville Plant Moving Faster than Other Brownfield Sites, DNR Says

December 2017: ELT announced the purchase and assumption of environmental liabilities at the 4.8 MSF Janesville Assembly Plant from General Motors.

Demolition work over the past year has cleared most of the former General Motors plant, leaving little behind besides the smokestack and the façade of the administrative building.

In December 2017, ELT assumed environmental liabilities and purchased real estate assets (via affiliate) from General Motors. Since that time, our team has been engaged in remediation, demolition, and planning for future development at the 250-acre site. 

In a recent news article, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources engineer confirmed that the Janesville reclamation project remains on schedule and is  "moving faster than other brownfield sites"
