Sel­lafield tower goes nowhere fast

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A 60-year-old, 60-me­tre chim­ney, pic­tured, at the Sel­lafield nu­clear site in Cum­bria is be­ing de­mol­ished – at the rate of one me­tre a week.

The chim­ney is be­ing re­moved over sev­eral years but Sel­lafield said its po­si­tion – on top of a 61-me­tre­high build­ing – makes this com­pli­cated.

Con­ven­tional de­mo­li­tion tech­niques can­not be used in the crowded, haz­ardous en­vi­ron­ment.
