Drone Footage Captures The Demolition Process Of An Old Silo
Drone video captured the demolition process of an old silo near the waterfront of Aalborg in Denmark. According to the filmer, the silo was demolished to make room for new apartments.
A total of 12 kg explosives were used to remove the roof, and footage shows this moment from different angles. Seeing the lights of explosion and watching the roof fall, gives us chills down the spine! This demolition took place on November 16.
A silo is a structure for storing bulk materials. Silos are used in agriculture to store grain or fermented feed known as silage. Silos are more commonly used for bulk storage of grain, coal, cement, carbon black, food products and sawdust. The three types of silos that are in widespread use today are tower silos, bunker silos, and bag silos.
There are different types of cement silos such as the low-level mobile silo and the static upright cement silo, which are used to hold and discharge cement and other powder materials. The low-level silos are fully mobile with capacities from 100 to 750 tons. They are simple to transport and are easy to set up on site. These mobile silos generally come equipped with an electronic weighing system with digital display and printer. This allows any quantity of cement or powder discharged from the silo to be controlled and also provides an accurate indication of what remains inside the silo. The static upright silos have capacities from 200 to 800 tons. These are considered a low-maintenance option for the storage of cement or other powders. Cement silos can be used in conjunction with bin-fed batching plants. Watch the few deep thumps of steel hitting concrete, followed by a shower of heavy debri as the roof falls down, provoked by the big explosion!
In another video, we see the demolition of a 53-meter-tall silo took an unexpected twist in Vordingborg, Denmark, on April 6 when the structure fell on the wrong, damaging a library. In a video shared on Instagram by student Reka Fodor, the silo can be seen falling as planned at first, before toppling backwards towards the library building. The local mayor, Mikael Smed, said he was pleased no one was hurt and that an investigation had begun into what went wrong. Video footage shows that the demolition of the 53-meter-tall silo went badly wrong when the structure fell the wrong way, damaging a library. Fortunately, no one was hurt and an investigation had begun in order to investigate what went wrong.
In addition, we dare you to take a look at the Hobson Street car park demolition in Oldham, England, which was demolished in a controlled explosion on Sunday, July 17. The blast reduced the car park to rubble in a matter of seconds. This video was shot by a drone hovering right above the 1970s-era building.The demolition came after the local council reportedly said the car park was “beyond economic repair.”
