INDUSTRIAL POWER PLANTS

INDUSTRIAL DEMOLITION AT THE LARGEST SCALE

Each type of plant poses its own unique hazards. Power plants are significantly taller than nearly any other building or structure industrial demolitions are performed on. These sprawling, towering, coal-powered facilities include massive cooling towers that can exceed 400 feet tall, compared to a manufacturing plant that on average stands around 2 or 3 stories tall.

As a result, industrial power plants demolitions pose exponentially higher safety risks in order to perform work at those excessive heights. The harsh reality is that falls are a great concern, as is the risk of dropping equipment from such dangerous heights, so performing work safely requires additional equipment, planning, and discussion.
