Keltbray demolishes huge wind turbine with explosives

Keltbray has demolished a giant wind turbine at Hunterston in Ayrshire.

Along with Controlled Demolition Inc (CDI), the firm blew up the 177m turbine in a controlled explosion (see 1.05 in video).

The turbine had been used as a rest site for offshore wind farms before being decommissioned. While one turbine was dismantled by crane in 2018, client SSE Renewables said there was no safe method of using a crane for the second turbine.

The National Offshore Wind Turbine Test facility at Hunterston was established in 2012.
