Built just as the Cold War came to its end, the K Cooling Tower at Savannah River Site in South Carolina, a nuclear processing plant, was never much in demand. Finally this week the enormous structure crashed to the ground in a remarkable controlled implosion. What goes up, must come down!
This was the second largest cooling tower to be consigned to oblivion by controlled destruction in the world, ever. The pictures do only little justice to the huge size of K Cooling Tower – it was 450 feet tall and 345 wide. As such it posed what you might call an exceptional challenge to the SRS managers. As such many experts were also called in to advise on the obliteration of the tower.
