Silo Demolition Goes off Script

No Comments

This is Vordingborg, Denmark. A concrete silo near the harbor is ready to be demolished. The wedge-shaped holes cut out of the bottom are to ensure that silo will fall to the right when explosives are detonated. They have prepared the area to the right to contain the debris as much as possible. The white building to the left is the town's library, which was closed for the occasion.


The Vordingborg local government said volunteer firefighters worked through the night to help secure the cultural centre.

The library said though books and everything else were covered in dust, there was little structural damage to the interior.
An investigation into the demolition has been launched to determine what went wrong.
