Bunker bay blast…

Demolition Services caries out another successful blast at Ironbridge.

Working in partnership with SES Explosives Engineers, Leeds-based Demolition Services carried out the successful explosive demolition of the bunker bay at Ironbridge Power Station shortly after 11 am today.

The steel bunker bay structure was the first of three planned explosive events in order to bring down the former boiler house, with the turbine hall itself having been demolished using traditional high reach methods earlier this year. The company has already seen success at the site when it executed the explosive demolition of the four cooling towers back in December 2019.

The company, working in partnership with site owners Harworth Group Plc, has been under the ongoing scrutiny by principal designers RVA Group since demolition works commenced in June 2019.

We are hoping to bring you more details of this project in a forthcoming edition of the Demolition magazine.
