The ENGIE Hazelwood Rehabilitation Project

Boiler House 1 at the former Hazelwood Power Station was successfully felled on Tuesday 19 October 2021 using explosive controlled collapse demolition methods.

The structure, along with extensive vibration and dust suppression measures, behaved as modelled to ensure the safety of all site personnel, the local community and nearby assets. The demolition took place at 11.26am, within the nominated window for the fell.

The demolition completed a safe and successful demolition program, which included the eight chimneys in May 2020, and the four Boiler Houses and all large mining equipment in the Hazelwood mine.
