Athlone cooling towers to be demolished on May 30th

The City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services, Alderman Clive Justus, confirmed today that the Athlone cooling towers will be demolished on May 30th.

This follows last month’s damage to the site when stabilising rings around one of the towers fell to the ground.

Justus says the city of Cape Town has finally appointed an engineering company to do the job.

“The consulting engineer has been appointed by the city to co-ordinate the development of the demolition of the towers,” he said.

The Athlone Power Station was effectively shut down in 2002 and in 2006 a decision was taken to decommission the site.

In 2009 a range of re-development options were put to the City’s Utility Services Portfolio Committee.
