Maintaining plume abatement at Shell Green

Increase the plume abatement effect of cooling towers seasonally, so maximum plume abatement can be achieved in the winter

Challenges

Evaporative cooling towers reject heat into the atmosphere in the form of warm saturated wet air, the larger the heat rejection the more water will be rejected into the environment. In the right conditions this water vapour will form visible clouds above the cooling towers or may cause dangerous icy conditions on the ground.


The Benefits

Using manually operated rolling doors to vary the airflow into the cooling towers, Galebreaker have made it is possible to increase the plume abatement effect of the cooling towers seasonally, so maximum plume abatement can be achieved in the winter and maximum evaporative performance can be achieved in the summer. This system can be scaled up and utilized on power stations where summer cold water temperatures can be reduced by more than 1°C (34° F) leading to increased generating capacity in the summer when the price per MW can be higher.

  • Cost effective plume control
  • Easy and fast installation
  • Minimal additional steelwork Screens available up to 60 meters (200ft)
  • ROI will be realised through increased generating capacity
