Demolition Services Limited facilitated the blow down of the No1 tower at Kellingley Colliery, Knottingley, using controlled explosives on Monday, 2 July 2018.
Demolition Services Limited commenced demolition works on the biggest deep coal mine in Europe in April 2016, with the blow down of the No2 tower on 10 November 2017, which went 100% according to plan thanks to the expertise employed by the family business.
Kellingley Colliery covers 151 acres and the project includes asbestos removal, demolition of all buildings and land decontamination so that the site is left in a healthy state for re development, which will boost the local Yorkshire economy investment by an estimated £100 million.
Demolition Services Group has been operating nationwide in the UK since 1980, and specializes in demolition, asbestos/waste management and land remediation. The project was an opportunity to showcase their extensive experience and expertise in a turnkey remediation contract.
