DSM blasts Eggborough DA bay

On 1 June 2022, DSM successfully demolished the former 5,000 ton DA Bay structure at the former Eggborough Power station plant.

This phase of the demolition was the forth successful explosive demolition in the ongoing redevelopment of the site which is earmarked for mixed use regeneration in a Joint Venture by St Francis Group and Commercial Development Projects.

The implosion took place at 9.50am within the perimeter of a secured 350 metre diameter exclusion zone to safeguard the public and third parties.

Over 40 DSM employees implemented the localised road closures and the exclusion zone supported by officers from North Yorkshire Police on the day and state of the art surveillance equipment including heat seeking drones ensured that the zone was completely sterile in advance of the works.
