Work to dismantle both the Aromatics 1 & Aromatics 2 100m+ tall reinforced concrete chimneys at Sabic UK Chemicals Wilton, has started with a team of five focusing on rigging Aromatics 1 in readiness for the start of the dismantling process.
The two reinforced concrete chimneys will be dismantled using Churchills sliding band scaffold rig ensuring all spoils arising from the dismantling process are contained at the working level. As each chimney is reduced in height the sliding band scaffold rig will be lowered under control continuing down to an agreed height leaving the chimney bases in situ.
Each remaining chimney base will then be dismantled using high reach machinery.
The contract will continue through to the end of July 2019 with a team building up to 10 strong once both chimneys are being worked on simultaneously.
The successful completion of both chimney structures at Sabic will see Churchill surpass over 4000 metres of controlled dismantling of reinforced concrete chimneys since our formation in April 1994.
