CHIMNEY PROJECTION MAPPING

Scottish Power – Longannet

An environmental message was projected onto Longannet Power Station chimney ahead of its demolition.  The projection demonstrated the importance of climate action and the need for immediate action to tackle the climate crisis.  Coal is the most polluting fossil fuel and phasing it out is a critical issue in tackling climate change.

HOW WE DID IT

Global Warming Stripes

Double Take Projections projected the environmental slogan “Make Coal History” onto the Longannet Power Station chimney ahead of the demolition.  Multi-coloured “global warming stripes”, created by Professor Ed Hawkins of Reading University, were also projected onto the chimney.  The stripes highlighted the variations in global temperature from 1850 to 2020, with shades of blue indicating cooler-than-average, and red hotter-than-average years.  Scottish Power described it as a call to action.

The Projection Could Be Seen Far and Wide

The Global Warming Stripes and the slogan ‘Make Coal History’ could be seen far and wide as we beamed our projection on to the chimney stack on Scotland’s last coal-fired power station, prior to its demolition.  The demolition of the station’s chimney was a milestone moment in the removal of what was once the largest power station in Europe. The 183-metre-high chimney had dominated the Forth skyline and been a regional landmark for generations.

The event was covered widely with our footage used in the press, on television networks and on social media platforms.
