Final demolition of North Yorkshire Power Station

With the blast captured by drone, the final remnants of Eggborough Power Station, North Yorkshire have been demolished.

Two structures collapsed in a controlled manner with the use of high speed explosives, during the demolition. The 50,000 tonne steel framed Boiler House together with a 20,000 tonne 200m tall reinforced concrete chimney were collapsed all within a 10 second period. Aerial imaging & surveying specialists Sky Revolutions captured the event.

The structures which were built in the 1960’s and had reached the end of operational life, were part of the decommissioned Eggborough Power Station Plant which closed in 2018.

Eggborough Power Station was bought by St Francis Group in 2019 with plans to demolish and build warehouse units in its place.

Thi demolition will now make way for regeneration of the area with industrial warehouses.

Birmingham based DSM Demolition carried out the demolition of the power station.
