Energy Brix demolition project in Morwell officially over
A milestone for the Latrobe Valley has been reached with the completion of the Energy Brix Australia Corporation Pty Ltd (EBAC) Demolition Project.
PwC, liquidators of EBAC, has notified the State Government that it relinquished control of the site yesterday and will continue to manage it for a further 14 days.
EBAC Remediation General Manager, Barry Dungey, said it was a tribute to everyone involved in the project that it had been completed safely and efficiently with no environmental impacts on the Latrobe Valley community.
“Significantly more asbestos was found during demolition than listed on site drawings, yet the project has continued to maintain its impeccable environmental record,” Mr Dungey said.
When the demolition started in January 2019, the original estimate of asbestos to be removed was 7600 cubic metres. The final total removed was around 40,500 cubic metres.
