Peabody Energy Coal Preparation Plants

Vincennes, IN

Once depleted of coal, Air Quality #1 and Air Quality South were slated for demolition. Recyclable steel was the main building component of the 5 story preparation plants, thus providing a revenue stream to the owner. By utilizing the time tested method of “tripping”, both the preparation plant and the concrete coal silos were weakened and then toppled. The steel is downsized and then sent to our scrapyard for further processing. Further, the concrete is processed, the rebar is removed, and then recycled and used onsite.
