The continuous cooling of the condenser within a very narrow temperature range is one of the essential prerequisites for keeping the pressure in the turbine at a constant level and is thus decisive for the efficiency of a power plant. In regions where water is abundant, once-through cooling or a wet cooling tower is normally used.

In areas with ecologically sensitive bodies of water or limited water availability, water consumption must be restricted. This is why indirect dry cooling towers are used in these regions as a rule.

In the Yangcheng power plant (2 x 600 MW), the world’s two largest dry cooling towers are operated. Through the use of these towers, water consumption could be reduced to three cubic metres per day. These cooling towers were erected by GEA EGI in 2007.
