Northern Power Station Chimney To Be Demolished

Northern Power station.JPGThe iconic 200m chimney stack at the Northern Power Station is set to be demolished tomorrow in a major event for the community.

This demolition is the final chapter in the two-and-a-half-year process to clear the site since the closure of the coal-fired power station.

Flinders Power says the Northern Power Station stack could not be retained as its condition will deteriorate over time now that it is no longer operational.

A public viewing area will be established along Shack Road, and Flinders Power are currently working with emergency services to ensure safety during the event. 

This will be the ideal location to view the stack felling as it will fall in a south-easterly direction.

The stack felling date has been scheduled for 8am 23 November 2018, weather permitting.

Flinders Power are preparing a community tribute to recognise the contribution of the Augusta Power Station to SA for the last 70 years. They have have been discussing with Council the opportunity to reclaim bricks from the felled stack to build a small tribute in a community space and to install an information placard detailing the history of the site.
