GrowHow UK Limited

Plant Decommissioning and Clearance

When premier fertiliser manufacturer GrowHow UK announced the decision to close its 100-acre Severnside plant, RVA was charged with managing, supervising and regulating the decommissioning and clearance of fertiliser production facilities, utilities equipment, laboratories and office buildings over nine separate locations within the site.

Traditional dismantling techniques were complemented by the controlled use of explosives to bring down the 100 metre tall Prill Manufacturing Tower, which once produced ammonium nitrate fertiliser pellets.
