When drought or extra hot weather sets in, or as environmental restrictions increase, many plants that depend on once-through cooling water become restricted by thermal discharge limits. Aggreko specialises in solving these limitations with rental thermal discharge cooling towers. There are three things we can do to help you get back within the guidelines:
We pump a portion of the hot water from the discharge canal, cool it off, and mix it with the remaining water until it is within the permitted limit.
We remove a portion of the hot water from the discharge canal, cool it off, and return it to the plant intake, reducing the plant’s overall consumption of its cooling source.
We completely isolate the plant from the once-through water source and place it on a cooling tower that is unrestricted by discharge limits.
We can engineer and install a cooling tower system optimised for any plant in just days.
