Entergy to auction $20 million worth of items from Vermont Yankee

Vermont Yankee, Vernon, VT

VERNON, Vt. (AP) — Entergy Corp. has earmarked about $20 million worth of accumulated inventory from the now-closed Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant for public auction.

More than four decades of equipment and supplies are being housed in a Brattleboro warehouse ahead of the Sept. 28 auction.

Heritage Global Partners has documented more than 1,000 lots of goods for sale. Alex Dove, the auctioneer's director of sales, says the number of individual objects runs many times that.

Dave Bauer, the Vernon plant's supply manager for 25 years, compared the auction to a wake for an old friend.

Dove says Heritage will be auctioning off everything from hand tools to parts of the plant itself. Also among the available items is 420 pounds of baking soda.

Bids will not be accepted past Sept. 29.
