Update from Footprint Power/#SalemMA Harbor Station:

Iberdrola just informed us that they have successfully completed the steam blows for Gas Turbine 6. The unit is in the process of shutting down now and will go into an outage. During this outage, the temporary piping that has been causing the noise will be removed. There will be similar steam blows for unit 5 in February. We have asked Iberdrola to apply the lessons they have learned about the noise coming from the temporary piping to do more to mitigate that noise during the unit 5 effort. Thanks you for your patience as they completed this necessary step. This noise WILL NOT be a part of normal operation.
