One of Britain’s best loved landmarks is to undergo a major transformation as part of a huge development project.
Waste management company Lloyds Environmental has just completed a major cleansing operation at Battersea Power Station, with the shell of the historic listed building set to be used as a new hub on the riverfront.
The Sussex-based firm was appointed by civil engineering services company Murphy Group to pre-clean and deep clean the old tunnels lying under the power station and the River Thames.
The tunnels were built in the 1920s and used to supply power to the whole of London via a steam turbine generator.
But now they have been thoroughly gutted, work can begin on luxury apartments, a hotel, park, sports centre and conference forum.
