We can supply both mechanical and natural draft wet cooling tower systems and design for a wide range of project specifications such as high seismic loads, vibration control, corrosion resistance, noise control, sub-freezing operation, and seawater use. Cooling towers can be manufactured using fiber reinforced polymer (FRP), concrete or wood.
Dry cooling technology, both air-cooled condensers (ACC) and air fin coolers (AFC), represent a substantial portion of B&W's global business, as water preservation is increasingly becoming a priority for plant owners and operators.
Environmentally friendly wet/dry (hybrid) cooling towers are the optimal solution for plume abatement and water saving. Hybrid cooling towers are specifically designed to avoid visible plume in cold, humid ambient conditions and when local constraints require this technology, such as at airports and residential areas.
