The cellulose in store nearby had to be protected from dust and any concrete or rebar debris. In the course of demolishing work it had to be ensured that no debris could drop into the river Neckar just 8 m away from the demolition site.
Because of the structure's height of 44 meters the demolishers GL-Abbruch GmbH, of Esslingen were faced with a demanding chore.
Demolition work carried out on such high structures requires a real expert excavator operator as well as special machinery with robust and perfected demolition tools.
Gerhard Ludwig, managing partner of GL-Abbruch GmbH, was impressed by the performance of the Atlas Copco CC 3300 U: The combi cutter's design is ideal for the service on longfront excavators. The two cylinders with the cutting jaws movable on both sides prevent strains from being transmitted to the excavator boom. Nevertheless the cutter makes a powerful and quick bite.
