Part of Eggborough Power station plant has been demolished today (June 1).
The former 5,000 ton DA Bay structure came down at 9.50am and was the fourth successful explosive demolition in the ongoing redevelopment of the site which is earmarked for mixed use regeneration.
More than 40 DSM employees implemented localised road closures and the exclusion zone, supported by officers from North Yorkshire Police.
State of the art shaped cutting charges were utilised to initiate the required collapse of the steel structure and the separation of the DA Bay from the Boiler House was captured by remote sacrificial imaging cameras inside the structure.
Residents were notified of the works by letter and through social media pages.
