    Background: A fractionating tower for a petrochemical plant in Argentina was yesterday (Wednesday), launched from a metalworks at Woolwich into the Thames and towed upstream to the Pool.

    The 120-ton cylinder was too large to be taken to the docks by road and although it proved to more costly to float the prefabricated structure, it did, according to the company, save time.

    The tower will be loaded aboard an Argentinian freighter for the trans-Atlantic crossing. It will later be off-loaded at a port 75 miles up the River Plate and taken by road to the construction site.
