Demolition magazine turns 40…

40th edition of the Demolition magazine is out now.

40 editions of the Demolition magazine and several constants: The same editor; the same industry experience; the same writing quality’ and the same insight.

The design might have changed a few times along the way together with the backroom staff, but the Demolition magazine has remained fiercely independent; bold in its editorial stance; broad in its coverage of the sector; and pioneering in its use of audio and video.

That continues with the latest edition. Paper copies will be arriving shortly on the desks of UK demolition contractors. But, if you can’t wait that long, you can read the latest edition below:

Three for three at Ironbridge…

Less than 6 weeks after the successful demolition of the Tank Bay at the former Ironbridge Power Station, Demolition Services has carried out the explosive demolition of the Boiler Bay.

This was the third and final blast at the site following previous explosive events here and here.

Liebherr’s landmark machine…

German demolition company AWR Abbruch GmbH has received the keys to the R 980 Demolition during an official handover at the Colmar site. The excavator was developed and produced by Liebherr-France SAS.

The German company is already familiar with Liebherr demolition machines and owns an R 974 Demolition machine that was acquired in 2007 and that is still in operation today. Since this first project, AWR Abbruch GmbH has also acquired other LIebherr machines including two demolition machines, wheeled excavators and wheel loaders.

The order was developed and executed at the Liebherr-France SAS production site in Colmar, in cooperation with the client. The machine has an operating weight of 190 tonnes, a counterweight of 35 tonnes and required months of study, testing and modifications in order to achieve a result that perfectly meets the customer’s expectations. The R 980 Demolition developed and produced by Liebherr-France SAS has four demolition units of 21, 26, 36 and 55 metres respectively. The 21 and 26-metre equipment will be able to support tools weighing 15 tonnes, 7 tonnes for the 36-metre version and finally 3 tonnes for the 55-metre version.
