Jamshedpur : A 27-year-old 110-metre high chimney at Tata Steel’s Jamshedpur factory was demolished in 11 seconds on Sunday. “Watch the video of dismantling the 110m high chimney at #TataSteel Jamshedpur Works – a feat of #engineering excellence!” Tata Steel tweeted along with the video.

“The Jamshedpur factory’s 27-year-old number 5 battery chimney 110 meters high was demolished using the implosion method, which made the demolition process safe for workers. It also saves time and is also environmentally friendly. The smoke tower was demolished within 11 seconds,” said Avneesh Gupta, Vice President of Tata Steel Factory.

The task was carried out by Edifice Engineering India in South Africa supported by J Demolition Company. It was the same company that destroyed the twin towers of Noida on 28th August.

This demolition of the chimney was followed by the use of a ‘water curtain’ to control dust and a ‘Ditch with dike’ also used to absorb vibrations. The use of ‘Steel wraps’ further prevents debris from flying around, Tata Steel said in a series of tweets.

Tata Steel’s VP Avneesh Gupta further said that the demolition was successful and planned as it fell to zero degrees, did not cause any casualties and was carried out in an environmentally friendly manner as well.
