Client: Springfield Coal
Location: Farmersville, IL
Project: Crown III Mine Dismantling
Year: 2015 Duration: 3 months
Springfield Coal contracted with Hayden Wrecking Corporation to dismantle the existing breaker building, conveyors and their associated structures located at the Crown III Mine. The breaker building contained numerous process equipment. Hayden Wrecking utilized an Ultra High demolition excavator equipped with a rotating shear to dismantle the taller portions of the structures. A standard configured demolition excavator equipped with a rotating shear was utilized to further dismantle the components and load out the materials. Hayden Wrecking Demolition Craftsmen equipped with cutting torches, down-sized the materials that were too heavy to cut with mechanical methods. The salvageable materials generated from the precipitators were taken to a recycling firm and Hayden Wrecking assumed the salvage value of the materials.
