KDC advised Johnson Matthey across all aspects of the Haverton Hill site closure, including decontamination, demolition, IPPC surrender and land remediation options. The resultant contract award in April 2011 was for a fast track 12 week demolition of the plant.
The Ruabon site is in a logistically demanding area with housing and a river close by and limited road access. Site residues included very hazardous chemicals used in the manufacturing process and the building incorporated an asbestos cement roof.
KDC are one of a small number of Dow’s approved global demolition service providers and were selected for a competitive tender process for the decommissioning and demolition of the site.
