January 14, 2020 – B.C. Cobb Plant demolition completed

The final piece of Muskegon’s former B.C. Cobb Plant has been demolished.

North Carolina-based Forsite Development on Saturday morning finished demolition of the former B.C. Cobb power plant, on the M-120 corridor in North Muskegon.

The city of Muskegon shared a video of the event.

Located on the shore of Muskegon Lake, just over a mile from Lake Michigan, the company plans to convert the area into a deep-water marine terminal that will enable multiple maritime cargoes to be shipped from Muskegon Lake.

The coal-fired power plant was shut down in 2016 by former owner Consumers Energy. It opened in 1948 and was named after Bernard “Burt” Capen Cobb, a former Consumers president.
