Sandbach Commercial Dismantlers successfully tendered for the demolition of the 26 Acre site down to slab level. The project included the removal of Brine Treatment & Ferric Chloride Plants, twelve on site sub stations, miscellaneous office blocks, tank farms and boiler houses. All work was completed in strict accordance with UK Health and Safety and Environmental legislation with no reportable incidents.

Issues encountered included the presence of residual Caustic (in pipework and tanks) which were removed using remote demolition methods.

The work was controlled using Brenntag dangerous work permits and SCD’s ‘Dynamic’ method statements and risk assessments which were issued on a daily basis. Work was undertaken in close proximity to the adjacent E-on operated Combined Heat and Power Plant.

Because of the clean air needed to feed the gas turbine, dust suppression was a constant issue which we addressed with permanent suppression monitors and water cannons in specified areas.
