Early NGS Unit 1 and 2 Construction

Here’s another snapshot of the unit 1 boiler under construction and construction progressing on unit 2. The structure for the U1 and U2 elevator is clearly visible. The units 1 & 2 turbine deck is there. One of the yellow Bechtel trucks we used to see all over town is in the foreground. Click the image to enlarge.

NGS Unit One Under Construction

This early photo of unit one at Navajo Generating Station is taken from the south, looking north. Click to enlarge it and take a closer look at the detail. The power block foundations for units one and two are in place and the coal silos for unit one are set. There’s a guy running a John Deere front-end loader in the foreground. Nothing runs like a Deere!
