Coal-fired power station. Field of cereal crops with a coal-fired power station in the background. Water vapour can be seen rising from the station's cooling towers. This type of power station burns coal to heat water producing steam which drives a turbine generator. The steam is then condensed by water in a secondary circuit and returned to be boiled again. The water in the secondary circuit is then cooled by spraying it into the towers.
