Tilbury Power Station Demolition Update

Further to our last update in December 2018 we wanted to take the opportunity to update and provide you with advance notice of the next and final explosive demolition event. 

At approximately 9am on the 14th March 2019, the 14th explosive demolition event will take place at site. The controlled demolition will simultaneously bring down boiler house 7 and 8. The structure is predominantly constructed of steel and is approximately 100 metres long, 30 metres wide and 60 metres high. 

Although the explosion and collapse may be heard off site, any noise will be over very quickly. Any dust generated will be controlled on site and road sweepers will be available although it’s anticipated that they will not be required. 

To protect everyone on site and in the local area an exclusion zone will be in place before, during and immediately after the explosion. The exclusion zone is well within the power station boundary fence and there will be no public access to the area or impact on the local road network. 

Demolition of this section of the power station is considered to be low impact. Although the explosion and collapse may be heard off site, any noise will be over very quickly. 

The other main structures on site have already been demolished and no further explosive demolition events will be required. The complete demolition of the site is expected in 2019.
