Project Description

Discipline(s): Demolition, Dismantling, Site Clearance
Sector: Coal
Location: Yorkshire
Project Duration: 3 Weeks

Euro Demolition & Dismantling Ltd were awarded the contract to carry out the dismantlement and demolition of several disused coal preparation plant items based at the client’s site in Hatfield, Yorkshire (these works were awarded in two phases).

The works were carried out on a live site, therefore the demolition area was carefully segregated to ensure there was no unauthorised access and to protect the remaining coal plant that was to remain in situ.  In addition to this we also arranged out of hours security for the duration of the works to ensure that all items were safe, as there had been several theft instances prior to the works being carried out.

These works comprised of the removal of an existing coal processing plant and equipment, which included process equipment, a quantity of steel pipes and redundant assets. There was also a well adjacent to our working area and at the client’s request we back filled for them.

A demolition excavator was used to bring the structures down to ground level with a shear attachment to carry out part of the cutting works. In addition to this, hot and cold cutting techniques were applied to cut the materials into a smaller size which were then removed from site by our licensed recycling partner.  A crane was also brought in to lift a large conveyor feed, which was then cut into appropriate sections and moved to ground level where it was cut to length and loaded onto skips.

All works were completed within the contracted timescale to the client’s satisfaction, without any incidents.
