Nuclear power station cooling towers. Artwork on the side of one of the cooling towers of a nuclear power station. This is to reduce the visual impact of the cooling tower upon the landscape. The cooling tower is the final chain in a series of energy exchanges. It is used to condense water that was used to cool the steam used to drive electricity generators. This steam was formed as the heat of nuclear fission was used to boil water. This is the Cruas-Meysse nuclear power station, on the River Rhone, north of Montelimar, France.
