Several factors are fueling coal plant demolition in Australia and across the globe. With the shift towards renewable energy resources, recent caps on greenhouse gas emissions, and extra wastewater regulations to consider, an increasing number of coal-fired operations are proving non-viable. But how can you demolish a coal plant efficiently, recover valuable scrap metal and preserve the land for redevelopment?
Draglines are heavy-duty excavating tools used to remove overburden in open-cut mines across Australia. While this huge piece of machinery can be highly productive and cost-effective, it will not remain feasible forever. Eventually, an abandoned or decades-old dragline will need to be demolished and removed from the mine site.
