A worker died Sunday after a fall at the Grand River Dam Authority’s (GRDA) Grand River Energy Center near Chouteau, Oklahoma.
GRDA spokesman Justin Alberty said the man was discovered around 1 p.m. after falling about 30 feet.
Alberty said the man was part of a crew working on a project on Unit 2 of the coal-fired complex, but it’s not yet known what led to his fall.
The Grand River Energy Center employs more than 200 full-time workers, according to GRDA’s website, though the man in Sunday’s accident was a contractor.
In November 2015, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas announced its first North American-produced M501J gas turbine would replace a coal-fired unit at the Grand River Energy Center.
