US energy company demolishes Trenton power plant stacks

DTE Energy has taken down the red and white stacks at the Trenton Channel Power Plant in Michigan, US, via an explosive demolition event. 

The stacks at the plant, which was built in the 1920s and retired in 2022 after 100 years of service, measured 563 ft (171 m) in height and were taken down on 15 March.

While no further details regarding the works have been revealed by the energy company, DTE has revealed that it will carry out the demolition of the power plant’s boiler house later this year.

DTE said: “We are proud of the plant’s long history of service and excited to continue our transition to a cleaner energy future for Michigan.”
