Cooling Towers Demolished Following Closure of Staffordshire Power Station

Four cooling towers at a former coal-fired power station in Staffordshire, England, were demolished on June 6.

Video footage posted to Twitter shows a crowd watching Rugeley Power Station’s towers being brought down. The site will be redeveloped into a “sustainable and innovative mixed-use neighborhood,” according to the planning application approved by local authorities in April.
