The Energy Ministry has announced that the infamous Delimara chimney is in its final demolition phase, the last few metres of which will be done away with today.

Energy Minister Joe Mizzi said that this was the highest structure in Malta and it was a symbol of pollution, remarking that the government’s policies are based on clean energy. He added that the machinery being used for the demolition were purposely brought from overseas in order not to disturb the neighbouring electricity plants.

Mizzi thanked all the workers involved, as well as Shanghai Electric for their cooperation.
