Annual maintenance at power plant is moving along steadily
WILLMAR -- Employees at the Willmar Municipal Utilities power plant are doing a lot of heavy lifting these days.
They're changing and repairing gears, shafts and cast-iron boiler parts weighing hundreds of pounds during the annual spring maintenance project. It's all part of their effort to keep the lights burning in Willmar.
Most power plants including Willmar's have some annual maintenance and it's usually done in the spring or fall when the electrical load is down.
