Successful Demolition of Northern Power Station Boilers

The landmark Northern Power Station boilers were successfully felled at the Northern Power Station site in Port Augusta this morning, the ninth of November.

The two 10,000 tonne structures were demolished at 9:00am using charge-cutting explosives, making it one of the largest explosive charge felling events ever to be undertaken in Australia.

McMahon Services are extremely proud of the achievement and the significant efforts by all personnel involved in the safe and successful felling event.

We share in Flinders Powers wishes to acknowledge the efforts of the thousands of dedicated and passionate people who designed, constructed, operated, maintained – and now demolished – these landmark structures over the past 30 years. 

Following today’s event, further demolition of the boilers will continue as planned using conventional demolition processes.
