Video – Demolition date set for Brayton Point…

Massachusetts cooling towers set to fall on 27 April.

The iconic cooling towers at the Brayton Point power plant will be demolished in April.

Representatives of Commercial Development Co., which now owns the former coal-fired facility, have informed local residents that the towers would be brought down by way of controlled demolition on April 27.

The two 152 metre tall towers were constructed in 2009 at a cost of $600 million. Their purpose was to cool the extremely hot water from the plant before it was discharged into Mount Hope Bay.
