Bellozanne demolition starts

05 November 2012

Work starts this week on the demolition of the old Energy from Waste (EfW) plant at Bellozanne, which stopped operating when the new plant at La Collette started taking the Island’s waste.

Initially, the contractor will get all the necessary equipment and vehicles on site and put up hoarding around the working area.  Removal of the old EfW equipment will progress until the end of the year and the demolition of the old buildings will start next year followed by the demolition of the chimney.

The contractor, Brown and Mason, a specialist UK based power station demolition contractor, will be supported by local suppliers. They expect to be able to recycle 99% of the demolition materials, most of which will be steel which will be exported for recycling in the UK, and concrete and masonry which will be recycled locally for construction aggregate. 

The demolition work will be undertaken within normal working hours and explosives will not be used to be bring down the chimney. Instead it will be brought down bit by bit, following the removal of the main buildings 

Transport and Technical Services would like to apologise in advance for the noise of the demolition and a slight increase in traffic in the area, however they will do their utmost to keep any disruption to a minimum. 

Deputy Kevin Lewis, Minister for Transport and Technical Services said “The Bellozanne Energy from Waste Plant has not operated since the end of 2010. We kept it on standby initially in case we had problems with the new La Collette plant when it was being tested, but it was never needed. This year we have been decommissioning the structure, stripping out all the interior equipment and now it is time for it to be demolished before it deteriorates and becomes expensive to keep safe and secure.”
