Demolition of Tilbury Power Station set for Thursday

THE DEMOLITION of the distinctive high tower at Tilbury Power Station is set to be carried out this Thursday (Sept 22nd).

The exact time will be know by Wednesday.

RWE Npower is planning to bring down one of the coal junction towers and its connected conveyors.

A spokesman for the company said" The explosion would “not impact local businesses, community or local traffic” and no emergency services would be required, except for a ‘minimal’ police presence.

Road sweepers and road cleaners will also be on hand should they be required.

The power station, which was closed in 2013, completed the first stage of its decommissioning phase after demolition began in January 2016.
