Belzona Facts:

The repair was complicated by the difficulties involved in reaching the deteriorated areas. A system of scaffolding and wooden planks had to be built for this purpose. All workers had to be affixed with security harnesses and lines. There were very strong winds and high temperatures at the top of the tower. The customer's only other option was to demolish the old tower and construct a new one.
