WATCH: Flinders Power demolishes Playford B chimney

Flinders Power has successfully demolished an 80m chimney at one of South Australia’s last coal-fired power stations.

Using explosives, the Playford B stack at the Augusta power station was felled last Friday.

“The explosive charges were designed to weaken the base of the stack, enabling a highly controlled fall in a designated zone,” Flinders Power said in a statement.

The Playford B station has been mothballed since 2012.

Alinta Energy announced its permanent closure, and the closure of the nearby Northern Power Station, in 2015.

The iconic 200m-high Northern stack is the final piece of major infrastructure still standing.

It is scheduled for demolition by May.
