An innovative replacement and upgrade of field erected cooling tower over an existing basin with limited site access. An aggressive construction schedule of eight weeks was followed with a limited total plant outage of three days. Cooling Tower performance was maximized including a decision mid project schedule to increase the tower footprint by approximately 25% without increasing the size of the existing cold water basin. Tower was completely stick built and erected two weeks ahead of schedule with zero safety incidents.
