Combi Cutter Pulls Down 44 Meter High Feed Silo

Combi Cutter Pulls Down 44 Meter High Feed Silo
A 44 m high feed silo on the dockyard of Messrs. Kaatsch in Plochingen had to be pulled down quickly, efficiently and with as less harmful environmental effects as possible.

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.
