Thousands of people appeared on Monday in the australian city of Morwell to see, as the city's landmark, the power station Hazelwood Power Station, got its eight chimneys razed to the ground. It writes the australian ABC.
the power Plant has been in use since 1960s, but no longer lives up to current standards and therefore has not produced electricity since 2017. The power plant has also been weighed and found too light to belong to the world cultural heritage, and as the chimneys at the same time contained large quantities of asbestos, they could not be standing and decay.
the Owner of the power plant, the French utilities Engie, so therefore no way for the demolition, which took place on Monday. Here they conquered the eight 137 metres tall chimneys on the strip, which was followed by thousands of spectators on both short and long distance.
See the demolition, which, according to the ABC could be felt 200 miles away in the Melbourne suburb of Bacchus Marsh, in the video above.
Despite the skorstenenes content of asbestos, according to the owner no danger that the locals must come into contact with the hazardous material after nedriviningen.
- There is absolutely no risk that asbestos will be other places than on earth, but it will be later rectified on the spot and stored in an approved container, tells the executive director of the Engie in Australia and New Zealand, Ryan Auger.
