Churchill have been awarded the contract to dismantle the 73 metre tall reinforced concrete chimney at Iggesund Paper Mill Workington.

The contract will be completed over a 3 month period by a 5-6 strong site team working from Churchill’s bespoke chimney dismantling rigĀ

The chimney will be reduced down to a height 14 metre above ground level at which point other contractors will use machinery to demolish the structure down to ground level.

Over a 24 year period Churchill have dismantled more than 100 reinforced concrete chimneys measuring over 30 metre in height with the tallest measuring 170 metres tall with a 7.8 metre top diameter.
