Complex blowdown…

Brown and Mason fells approximatley half of power station with press of button.

BRown and Mason carrying out the successful demolition of one power station or another is hardly news. It seems that rarely a week goes by when the company doesn’t send some poor, unfortunate power plant to its grave. But, even by Brown and Mason standards, last week’s implosion at Longannet Power Station was a bit special.

According to the company, this was one of the most technical blow downs ever undertaken on a power station. “At the press of a button, half of what was once the largest, most poluting power plant in Europe was gone,” says Nick Brown.
