Video – German power plant felled…

Boiler house dropped, cooling tower and stack follow.

Contractors carried out an impressive explosive demolition of the Knepper power plant in Castrop-Rauxel near Dortmund, Germany yesterday.

First, the boiler house was blown. Then, about 45 minutes later, the 128 metre tall cooling tower and the 210 metre high chimney of the former coal-fired power plant followed almost simultaneously.
