Provo Power Smokestack Demolition near BYU

Provo Power Smokestack Demolition, near BYU (Brigham Young University) in Provo, Utah. It was Time to Make Way for a New Natural Gas Powered Electric Generation Plant. These Two (2) Smoke Stacks for the Old Provo Coal Powered Generation Plant had to be Demolished by Precise Blasting. Since the Tall Stacks were right next to a Cell Tower, a Google Building close by to the North, a Residential Neighborhood to the West and a Recreational Center to the South West, the Demolition Expertise from Grant Mackay Company was requested. Through Careful Engineering, both Smoke Stacks were Blasted from the Bottom with Great Accuracy so that each Smoke Stack Tripped and Fell Successfully into a Pre-Built Containment Area. To Accomplish this, the Blasting had to be Timed such that the Smoke Stacks had to Cross in Mid Air without Hitting Each Other on the way down. Part of the Pre-Engineered Plan involved building a Dirt Bern that Protected the Residential Neighborhood to the West and the Recreational Center to the South West. It Became Another Successful Demolition in the History of the Grant Mackay Company.
