DURASTEEL® Reduces Risk of Power Station Fire and Blast

On 8th August 2008 an explosion and subsequent fire at the Enron Power Station in Middlesborough, Teesside led to the deaths of 3 employees. The coroner’s report returned a verdict of ‘accidental death’. This followed an investigation in which the blast was found to have been caused by an electrical fault in a transformer, most probably a short circuit.
