Built in 1952, deconstructed in 2017, the 80-metre high chimney of one of our clients in Rotterdam.
Unique objects are the best challenges for Meuva, including this 80-metre high chimney, part of an old lubricating oil factory.
Blowing up or toppling were not possible in this situation, the chimney was surrounded by live industrial installations. The methodology of a scaffolding tower with a working platform was chosen. A lift installation was been built against the wall of the chimney to guide employees to the top of the chimney. From there, the chimney was broken down from top to bottom.
Because images say more than words, we have this unique project captured on screen, see the video below.
