THE two tall chimneys at Tilbury Power Station are set to be demolished.
The 170m tall chimneys will be brought down simultaneously by controlled explosions next Thursday (Sept 28th).
The demolition is scheduled for 8am.
The chimneys have been part of the site since the station was built in 1969 and this will mark the site’s seventh controlled explosive demolition.
RWE Generation, which manages the site, said: “There are no safe and accessible areas around the perimeter of the station which would provide views of the chimneys coming down and no public car parking available in the area.”
