The Demolition of Tsing Yi Power Station, Hong Kong

This paper describes the civil work involved in the demolition of Tsing Yi Power Station in Hong Kong, during 1998. The work included the use of explosives to safely demolish the five, up to 150m-tall, reinforced concrete chimneys. This was one of the first and largest uses of explosives in demolition in Hong Kong. Demolition methods adopted in Hong Kong and the UK are compared and contrasted. T.J. Dishman
