Power station cooling towers. Cooling towers are used to dispose of waste heat from industrial processes. The waste energy is absorbed by water, which is sprayed into the cooling towers where it evaporates. Some of the water condenses and is reused, and some is lost as water vapour into the atmosphere. This is Cottam coal-fired power station, in Nottinghamshire, UK. It was opened in 1969, and generates 2000 megawatts of power.
