In England, the huge cooling towers of the old coal-fired power plant were epicly demolished.
Reports about it Yorkshire Post.
Four 90-meter cooling towers were destroyed by a controlled explosion on October 10 in the village of Eggboro.
This spectacle gathered a lot of spectators who came to say goodbye to the local attraction:
On the day of the demolition, police blocked roads and 40 guards patrolled the 350-meter security zone.
The thermal power plant at this place operated for half a century, it began to produce electricity in 1967, and in 2018 it was decommissioned due to unprofitability.
It produced almost 2,000 megawatts of electricity, ie provided light to 2 million houses.
The giant structures were destroyed as part of the planned reconstruction of this area – in the near future an industrial and distribution park will be built here. On August 1, four other towers were similarly demolished.
Earlier, UNIAN reported that one of the structures of the old elevator, which has not been used since the mid-1990s, was dismantled in Kharkiv.
