Coal-fired power station. Steam billowing from the cooling towers (left) of a coal-fired power station. The main body of the power station is at right. This type of power station burns coal to heat water. The resulting steam 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. Photographed in Germany.
