Asbestos Exposure at Roseton Generating Station

Roseton Generating Station is located less than 50 miles from New York City, in Newburgh, NY. Roseton sits on the western shore of the Hudson River, standing in contrast to its beautiful surroundings. Roseton has provided power for thousands of New Yorkers. Sadly, Roseton is also one of the most well-known sources of asbestos exposure in the Hudson Valley. Scores of people who worked at Roseton, have developed, or remain at risk of developing life-shattering illnesses, such as mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Roseton takes its name from the former Rose Brick Company. When the company shuttered, the site was purchased by the Central Hudson Gas & Electric Company. Roseton went on-line in 1974. The dual-fired 1,242 megawatt generating station can run on fuel oil, or natural gas. Tangentially-fired Combustion Engineering boilers, and 3600 RPM General Electric turbines, power the facility. Levy Konigsberg understands how workers are exposed to asbestos from large, complex machinery that utilized asbestos. It is this type of specialized knowledge about asbestos products and disease that has enabled Levy Konigsberg to recover hundreds of millions of dollars for powerhouse workers who developed catastrophic asbestos-related injuries, such as mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Levy Konigsberg’s attorneys are fully familiar with sources of asbestos exposure. Roseton’s workers have an elevated risk of developing mesothelioma and lung cancer, from their exposure to myriad asbestos-containing products. Generating stations, such as Roseton, are filled with asbestos-containing products, including: turbines, insulation, pipe-covering, cable, wire, blowers, condensers, firebrick, refractories, boilers, pumps, valves, gaskets, and cements. Even floor dust from these products can cause deadly diseases in powerhouse workers.

Levy Konigsberg’s attorneys have highly specialized knowledge of the asbestos-containing products now, or formerly used at Roseton. Powerhouse workers from all trades, such as: steamfitters, electricians, engineers, boiler tenders, maintenance workers, plumbers, and have gotten gravely ill by working to deliver electricity to the Hudson Valley. Levy Konigsberg has helped countless numbers of them.

Mesothelioma and lung cancer usually strike many years after powerhouse workers are exposed to asbestos. A powerhouse worker, or contractor who worked at Roseton in the 1970s or 1980s, is just entering the period of heightened risk for becoming ill as a result of asbestos exposure. Unlike other occupational injuries, asbestos disease could have been avoided. This is tragic, because some of the worst purveyors of mesothelioma and lung cancer, fully knew the dangers associated with asbestos exposure. Rather than warning about the dangers of using their products, these companies stood mute, and put profits before the health and safety of hardworking powerhouse workers. Tragically, the after-effects of their misconduct is all too familiar.
