Have your say

Two more steel “precipitator” structures are set to be demolished at Cockenzie Power Station on Thursday, August 14 at 2pm, using controlled explosion.

The 300 tonne structures have a height of 34 metres and a width of 10 metres by 12.5 metres.

This will be the seventh similar explosive demolition to take place at Cockenzie, managed by ScottishPower’s contractor Brown and Mason.

The precipitator structures are located on the seaward side of the main building, with an exclusion zone required immediately before and after the event and the short term closure of the section of the John Muir Way running parallel to the sea wall.

The Greenhills is suggested as a safe public viewing area for demolition operations.
