Greenway Plaza Cooling Tower Repair – Emaco


Years of reinforcing steel corrosion had delaminated the upper portion of the Central Plant Cooling Tower Basin wall to the point that the top of the wall was about to fall off.

Mobile’s crew removed the unsound concrete, sandblasted the surfaces and remaining portions of reinforcing steel, installed new reinforcing steel by epoxy bonding dowels in place and tying the new steel in, forming up and repouring Emacco S88 CI, a shrinkage compensated, fiber enhanced repair material to rebuild the wall to original dimensions.

Later, Mobile crews installed EnviroLastic AR 200 HD over the wall surface to provide a long lasting, permanent repair.
