Eskom Corporate Engineering was instructed by its insurance company to do a shape deformation survey of all the existing cooling towers on the fossil fuel power stations (69 in total) to assess the structural integrity and remaining life of the cooling tower structures. No surveys of this nature had been done since they had been built more than 50 years ago. In fact, this had never been done before in South Africa, and all the research and development to execute the project was carried out in South Africa.
