Operator killed on Indian site…

Young worker crushed beneath excavator as it falls into unseen basement.

The demolition of the fire-ravaged Chennai Silks building on Usman Road in Thyagaraya Nagar was suspended on Saturday after a 22-year-old operator of an excavator died in an accident at the site.

One of the two excavators that were involved in the demolition work developed an oil leakage. An operator – G. Sarathkumar – came out of his cab and was checking the machine when suddenly the earth under the machine caved in to a depth of 10 feet. Realising the danger he was in, Sarathkumar started to run, but the boom of the excavator crashed down upon him.

“Using an earth-mover, we pulled out the jaw-cutter from the pit and removed Mr. Sarathkumar who had been caught under,” said G. Selvakumar, fire officer at T.Nagar,

World Exclusive – The Dawning of The Destroyer…

Brown and Mason’s new monster machine gets ready for work.

The latest addition to the fleet of power station demolition specialist Brown and Mason is undergoing final preparations at the Messiah Corp. yard at Grays in Essex. And DemolitionNews got to see it first.

Weighing in at 135 tonnes and equipped with a massive Genesis GXP1500R attachment, the Hitachi EX1200 machine is being readied for a three-month stint at Didcot A Power Station before heading for the Longannet Power Station in Kincardine, Scotland where Brown and Mason has a four-year demolition project.

“With the help of Messiah, we bought the machine from a company in Spain and had it shipped back to Grays,” Brown and Mason’s Nick Brown explains. “Messiah also helped us source the Genesis shear and they have helped us get the machine ready for work.”

The shear alone weighs more than 13 tonnes and has a jaw opening of 1.118 metres. When it goes to work, it will be one of the largest of its kind in the UK.

We will be bringing you more details in the next episode of Demolition TV. But, until then, you can see this massive machine in this exclusive new video:

Silver bullet for Silverdome…

Adamo opts for high reach approach to stadium demolition.

As contractors in Georgia prepare to take down the famous Georgia Dome using a controlled explosion, the end of Detroit’s Pontiac Silverdome will begin shortly in less dramatic fashion.

Richard Adamo, president of Detroit-based contractor Adamo Group, said Friday that his demolition crews hope to start tackling the empty sports venue within 45 days. The firm is under private contract with the Silverdome’s owner, Triple Investment Group, and has applied for a demolition permit from the City of Pontiac.

Adam said he is just waiting for utility companies to disconnect all electricity, gas and water from the 127-acre site before the permit can be issued.

“Within 45 days, there should be some significant demolition activity going on,” Adamo said in a phone interview. The entire process — including filling and grating the hole —should take about a year.

The demolition will be done with hydraulic excavators and accomplished in sections. “I don’t really see any reason to implode at this time,” he said.

Georgia Dome has a date with destiny…

Implosion scheduled for November this year.

Recent progress on the construction of Mercedes-Benz Stadium has led officials to set a date for demolishing the Georgia Dome next door.

The Dome — the Falcons’ home for the past 25 years — is now scheduled for implosion on 20 November this year the team’s parent company, AMB Group, said Friday.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Dome’s successor, is slated to open on 26 August with a Falcons-Arizona Cardinals exhibition game.

The original plan was for the Dome to be imploded in July, but that plan was scrapped in April to keep the building in place as an insurance policy against further construction delays with the new stadium.

But stadium officials gained confidence in the late-August opening after the recent completion of structural steel work and the movement last weekend of the motorized roof from open to closed for the first time.

“Significant progress on Mercedes-Benz Stadium is achieved every day, and we’ve hit a few exciting milestones on the roof over the last week,” Steve Cannon, AMB Group’s CEO, said in a statement Friday. “With strong confidence, we’ve asked the contractors to move forward getting the Georgia Dome ready for implosion on Nov. 20.”

Workers take cover after radiation alarm in demolition area…

Radiation scare at former plutonium finishing site.

Around 350 Hanford employees were given the all-clear Thursday after taking cover for about three hours when two air monitors went off, signalling radioactive contamination in the air.

Hanford reports the contamination level detected by air monitors was “low.”

The emergency occurred at the demolition site of the most hazardous facility on the 465-square mile Hanford reservation – the plutonium finishing plant. That was the last stop for production during the Cold War, from 1949 to 1989. Inside the building the environment was so lethally radioactive that workers could not enter rooms where work was taking place. Instead they carried out their duties remotely, using what are known as glove boxes, to turn liquid plutonium into button used to fuel nuclear warheads.

Video – Almost a trip to A&E…

Demolition video sparks safety concerns as block narrowly misses excavator.

Dramatic video from a Tennessee demolition project has state regulators investigating the safety of workers at the site.

That video captured what witnesses thought was a potentially dangerous mishap as a building was “tripped”.

It occurred in the shadow of Saint Thomas West Hospital near Belle Meade where workers were bringing down a once-futuristic, 11-story apartment building.

Local people watched as workers took out key support beams, causing parts of the building to crumble into a cloud of dust and debris and narrowly missing an excavator.

Video Exclusive – The Greatest show in Earth…

The rains came to Bruntingthorpe; but so did the visitors.

The PlantworX 2017 exhibition was the most important gathering of the UK construction and demolition equipment industry this year.

Attracting just under 400 exhibitors, the show has become the worthy successor to the long-lamented SED of old. And even though torrential rain on the opening day turned the showground into the bastard offspring of a Glastonbury festival and The Somme, the visitors came in their droves to see the hottest new equipment on the market.

This exclusive video – shot by our friends at DemoVision – brings you just some of the the sights and sounds of a truly memorable show.

Video – Powering down…

Video captures final moments of Belgian power station facility.

A controlled implosion has felled the cooling tower and three stacks at the Ruien power station in Belgium.

Ruien power station was a 560-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in East Flanders province Kluisbergen, Belgium.

The coal-fired units 3-4 of 130 MW each were retired in 2012, and unit 5 of 300 MW in 2013. The plant was owned by GDF Suez, which later became Engie.
