MEDIA  RELEASE – 9 November 2017

Successful Demolition of Northern Power Station Boilers

The landmark Northern Power Station boilers were successfully felled at the Northern Power Station site in Port Augusta this morning.

The two 10,000 tonne structures were demolished at 9am using charge-cutting explosives.

A spokesperson for Flinders Power said that following today’s event, further demolition of the boilers would continue as planned using conventional demolition processes.

An amount of dust was visible at the site of the demolition, which settled on the site.

Flinders Power would like to thank its alliance partner McMahon Services, demolition experts Precision Demolition, Flinders Power staff and Emergency Services for their contribution to the safe and successful felling.

The company also wishes to acknowledge the efforts of the thousands of dedicated and passionate people who designed, constructed, operated, maintained – and now demolished – these landmark structures over the past 30 years.
