On the 22nd August 2010 the Athlone Cooling Towers will be Demolished. The Huge Demolition of 9000m2 concrete structure will take place at noon.
The reason for this is that the support structures have become compromised and the big structures (The Two Old Ladies) are a danger.
This video quickly gives a general over view in a kind of Motion Infographic style.
I will be filming the demolition and posting the video as soon as it is ready – probably before GMT+2 8pm. So keep looking here if you want to see the video. I must just be careful of all the dust and debris since I will be quite close.
