Cockenzie Power Station Demolition

WASHINGTON - Commenting on the demolition of the chimneys and turbine hall at Cockenzie power station taking place at noon on Saturday 27th Sep 2015, Dr Richard Dixon, Director of Friends of the Earth Scotland, said:

“The demolition of the iconic Cockenzie chimneys will dramatically change the Lothians landscape and signals the imminent end for coal in Scotland. For those who’ve worked at the plant it may well be an emotional day but as a country it shows the positive steps we’ve taken in the fight against climate change and for clean energy.”
