Noida: With all arrangements in place, Supertech twin towers in Noida Sector 93A are set to be demolished as per its schedule on Sunday. The towers- Apex & Ceyane, stands at 103 and 97 metres respectively, will be razed using more than 3,700 kilograms of explosives. Both the giant structures will collapse at sharp 2:30 pm in just nine seconds while 12 minutes will take to settle dust generated after the implosion. The action has been taken following the Supreme Court’s order to raze both the illegally constructed buildings.
As per the agencies involved in razing the towers, a special dust machine has been put in place to check dust and pollution after the implosion. Residents living in the Emerald Court Society, where both the towers were erected by violating norms, have been evacuated safely to some other locations, security guards deployed in the society have also been taken to safer locations. Water and power connections of the society have been disconnected.
At the time of demolitions, vibrations will be felt up to 30 metres, but only for a few seconds, that too at just about 30 mm/second. At the time of implosion, the project’s engineer will stand next to the blaster, to be designated by the Noida administration, besides three experts from Africa and some other government officers. As per the report, a total of 10 people will be present at least 100 metres away. Nearly 55,000 tonnes of debris will be generated after demolition which will be used in the basement of the towers and will be treated scientifically by the authorities outside Noida.
To raze the towers, over 3700 kilograms of explosive have been inserted into nearly 7,000 holes in the pillars. When blast will take place in these holes, they will help in crashing pillars of both the buildings resulting in demolition of the structures.
Local administration has completed evacuation of nearly 7000 people living in Emerald Court society and ATS Village society which is located in close proximity. The evacuation work was completed before 7 am on Sunday.
