Video – Longannet latest…

Another day, another successful implosion at Scottish power plant.

The complete eradication of Scotland’s last remaining coal fired power station has moved a step closer with the removal of several more key structures.

Three smaller structures close to the stations iconic chimney were ‘blown down’ in calm conditions on 13 December by ScottishPower demolition contractor Brown & Mason.

Longannet was closed by ScottishPower in 2016, marking the commitment by both ScottishPower and parent company Iberdrola to decarbonising the economy and a stronger focus on renewable power.

With demolition work still ongoing, over 28,000 tonnes of material removed from site so far, with 98.5% of this being recovered/recycled.
