RIMECO is participating in the demolition and collection of scrap from this job. About 100 crumbling German bunkers
on Denmark's west coast are a danger to beach guests and will start being demolished during the autumn 2013.
Bunkers on Denmark’s west coast that were built by Germany during the Second World War will start being torn down during august 2013.
Many of the 600 concrete bunkers, constructed by the Nazis to defend against an attack from the North Sea, have lost the battle against the elements and have become dangerous relics of the war.
As mentioned by the acting environmental minister: “Beach guests can risk getting hurt by the bunkers,” stated in a press release. “That is why we are removing the dangerous bunkers for the benefit of everyone who spends time in the beautiful nature of the west coast.”
The Environment Ministry, Transport Ministry and a range of west Jutland councils have joined together to fund a 12 million kroner project to remove 120 of the most dangerous bunkers.
In the beginning of August, are the first of the bunkers going to be torn down on Langerhuse beach near the town of Harboøre in Lemvig Council. The work will mark the end of a long-standing dispute about who should pay for the removal.
The bunkers formed part of the Nazi’s Atlantic Wall, a system of around 8,000 coastal fortifications ordered by Hitler in 1942 that run along the coast of continental Europe and Scandinavia, from the border of Spain and France to the most northerly point in Norway.
