The ductwork of a 240 mega-watt fossil fuel power plant collapsed, causing major structural damage.

The 800 ton capacity outlet ducts for the spent coal (ash), which led to the selective catalyst recovery (SCR) unit, were under-designed. The damage resulting from the collapse affected 3 generators, 3 coal-fired boilers, and the general supporting structural systems.
