Excavator on 600 feet Cooling Tower (remote-controlled)


Because a blast was out of the question, the 162 meters high cooling tower of the former Mülheim-Kärlich nuclear power plant was cleared from above with a remote-controlled excavator piece by piece. After falling below a height of approx. 80 meters, a demolition excavator finally brought the cooling tower down from the ground on August 9, 2019.

Due to a faulty building permit procedure, the nuclear power plant was only in operation for about two years.
