I like the collapse, reformation, and collapse again sequence.
Quite a sad story about the rise and fall of the Bethlehem Steel Co.
Interesting parallels to the WTC twin towers rising and felling.
This tower was supposed to have a twin. Building started in 1969. The company went under in 2001.
They spent time removing the asbestos and stripping it down to the steel and concrete floors when all hope of redevelopment was lost.
Is there any doubt that CDI imploded the WTC? Not for me.
In the last couple years, the owners have removed asbestos from Martin Tower and demolished more than 400,000 square feet of ancillary buildings on the campus. The decision to demolish Martin Tower was announced earlier this year after the interior of the building was gutted to the steel beams and concrete floors.
Twin towers being demolished – in Canada. This is particularly annoying to me because this coal plant – the most efficient form of electricity production – is being razed to make way for the most unreliable and expensive source of power – wind. Note the times (11/11).
No one ever talks about “acid rain” any more in Ontario, despite the fact that coal is still being burned across all wind paths from Ohio and Michigan.
This confirms to me that to start a new (not so profitable) business, you have to blow up an old one. Power was supposed to be a public utility, sold at cost here.
In a matter of seconds, chimney towers which had stood tall over the Lake Erie shoreline for decades were taken down. Demolition work at the Nanticoke Generating Station was slated to begin around 8:30 a.m. It was later pushed to 11 a.m. due to concerns about wind direction.
John Adams and Chris talk about exploding houses at 1:35:00.
They’re probably mini controlled demolition jobs.
