Excavator on 600 feet Cooling Tower (remote-controlled)


There are a lot of hazardous jobs in this world. Sometimes, even when the ʀɪsᴋ is great, the work must be done. Thankfully, technology has made it possible for these kinds of activities to potentially be completed with a little less ʀɪsᴋ. They might even be possible to complete from a distance. At the end of the day, if a scenario exists that puts people in danger, working to eliminate that ʀɪsᴋ is generally the best course of action. Every day, many bright individuals challenge their wits to find solutions to these issues.

In this one, we examine a duty that would often come with a high level of danger. At first view, it almost seems as if someone is hanging from the same structure while operating an excavator to chip away at a building that needs to be ᴅᴇsᴛʀᴏʏed. We can’t help but sense that the piece of machinery isn’t far behind as the bricks fall.

However, it doesn’t take long for us to realize that everything is being done remotely. That’s correct, if everything collapses, it’s unlikely that anyone will get wounded.

In fact, watching the mechanism rotate around the top of the tower is rather captivating. As it proceeds, it chips away and the fragments fall. In essence, this is done to reduce the height of the top before demolishing. According to the HD1080ide YouTube channel, the Mülheim-Kärlich Nuclear Power Plant construction required to be less than 530 feet tall before it would have collapsed. Support pillars were taken out after the building had been lowered to nearly half its former height. An excavator that was operated remotely was also used for this.

By watching the video below, we can get a glimpse of the fascinating procedure that is carried out from a secure location. This is only one illustration of how technology is contributing to a far safer society.
