Further structures at Longannet, Scotland’s last coal-fired power station, have been successfully brought down in a controlled explosion.
Three smaller structures close to the stations iconic chimney were ‘blown down’ in calm conditions on Thursday, 13 December by ScottishPower demolition contractor Brown & Mason.

Longannet was closed by ScottishPower in 2016, marking the commitment by both ScottishPower and parent company Iberdrola to decarbonising the economy and a stronger focus on renewable power.

With demolition work still ongoing, over 28,000 tonnes of material removed from site so far, with 98.5% of this being recovered/recycled.

Earlier this year, ScottishPower became the first integrated energy company in the UK to shift completely from coal and gas generation to wind power. Globally Iberdrola aims to reduce emissions by 30% by 2020, and 50% by 2030 compared to 2007 and be carbon neutral by 2050.
