The chimney replacement programme is something we have worked on closely with the developers and we're satisfied that this is the correct way forward and that once the chimneys have replaced you really won't know the difference.
The famous chimneys of Battersea Power Station could be recycled as pieces of art after they're demolished.
Work to take down the towers - which are beyond repair - will begin later this month. Once fully dismantled, the chimneys will be rebuilt from the bottom using the same materials as the original.
The towers take approximately five months to dismantle, and about six months to rebuild chimney to its height of approximately 50 metres.
The chimney debris will be funnelled down a chute in the centre of the chimney, collected and recycled. Several different uses for the material are being explored, including reuse as artwork.
