Athlone Power Station

Athlone Power Station is a decommissioned coal-fired power station in Athlone, Cape Town, South Africa. The station's two cooling towers formed a landmark on the N2 freeway into the city, and were fed by reclaimed water from a nearby sewage plant. The lifespan of the towers was extended in 1993 through the addition of reinforcing bands, but on 14 February 2010, the bands on one tower collapsed, leading the city to announce that the towers would be demolished by the end of April 2010 to prevent their collapse; the demolition was postponed to 22 August 2010 when they were finally demolished. The facebrick power station building and two 99m high chimneys were not included in this demolition.
