Richborough Towers demolition :: Shared Description
On the 11th March 2012 at 9am, the four towers of the disused Richborough Power Station
were demolished by DDS Demolitions.
The power station was opened in 1962, decommissioned in 1996, and permission to demolished the three cooling towers (each 97m high) and chimney (127m high) was granted in January 2012.
The towers were all demolished in 15 seconds, starting with three cooling towers (south, then north west, then north east tower) which were collapsed within their own footprint, and followed by the chimney which fell north west wards between the flattened cooling towers.
A new renewable energy park will be built on the site at a cost of £750 million, and called Richborough Energy Park.
