Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): The chimney of Moorburg Gas-fired Power Station was the third-tallest
structure in Hamburg. It was used by 500 MW gas-fired power stations. In 2001 they were shut down as price for natural
gas grew so much, that operation was inecconomic.
On April 24th, 2004 the chimney was demolished by explosives, which were fixed at ground level, at a height of 63.5 metres
and at a height of 91 metres.
The airblast of the collapsing chimney threw a metal grid of a ventilation shaft from a nearby boiler house and threw it into
a switchyard, where it caused a short-circuit resulting in a blackout in some parts of Hamburg and a loss of production for
some days in nearby oil refineries.
