Watch: 110-metre Chimney Demolished in 11 Seconds in Jamshedpur

Jamshedpur: It took only 11 seconds to raze a 110-meter-high chimney of Tata Steel to the ground. This 27-year-old chimney at Tata Steel’s Jamshedpur plant was demolished by implosion method to avoid any damage to the surrounding. The expenditure of Tata Steel to demolish this chimney was around Rs 2 crore. This demolition took place on Sunday.

This environment-friendly demolition process saved time and posed no danger to any worker of the steel plant.

South Africa’s Edifice Engineering India supported by J Demolition Company took up this chimney demolition project. This company had earlier demolished Noida’s twin towers on August 28. The towers of 32 floors and 29 floors were taller than the Qutub Minar. It was the biggest ever planned demolition in India.

Tata Steel’s VP, Avneesh Gupta said, “The demolition took place successfully and in a planned manner as it (Chimney) fell down zero-degree, did not cause any loss of lives and was conducted in an eco-friendly manner too”.

Before taking up the demolition of this tall chimney, a 75-year-old repair shop of the coke plant was demolished as a rehearsal.

Speaking at a press conference, the Vice President of the Tata Steel Plant informed that the company is planning to remove all the old plants and bring in new plants.

Another 110-meter-high chimney of Tata Steel is to be demolished soon.
