The AP has reported a contractor is dead after an accident Wednesday morning at the Harrison Power Station in Haywood, W.Va.
The Harrison Power Station is a coal-fired plant owned by FirstEnergy (NYSE: FE). A spokesperson for the company said the victim was employed with Burnham Industrial Contractors Inc. and extended the company’s sympathy to the family, but could not release the victim’s age or hometown, according to the AP. The spokeswoman could not immediately describe the circumstances of the accident, but said FirstEnergy works hard to maintain safe operations at all its plants and will investigate the accident.
Another worker died at the plant less than two years ago when pinned between a machine and a wall. The plant currently employs more than 200 people.
