Lowering of the Marsac-sur-Don measurement tower in sections
GenWind (Ponticelli) commissioned to safely destroy the 99 m tower
At the end of a wind measurement study, a developer must remove the tower from the parcel of land. This dismantling operation may be carried out either as simple disassembly works with subsequent reuse in mind, or destruction by lowering. This was the case for our client Renvico.
The difficulties with this type of operation consist of controlling the surrounding elements, especially if the tower cannot be lowered in one go. The tower therefore needs to be lowered in sections, so that falling parts land as much as possible within a restricted area under controlled speed.
