Photo of the Day - Cooling Tower
Sunday, July 22, 2007
The photo of the day is a Cooling Tower in Wilton International petrochemicals complex. Wilton International is one of few sites in Western Europe with special development status, designed for heavy industrial use such as chemicals and process plants. Many of the world's leading chemical and manufacturing companies are well established at Wilton, including blue-chip multinational such as BP-Amoco, DuPont, HISI (jointly owned by Huntsmant and ICI), DuPont Sa, ICI, Targor (jointly owned by BASF and Hoechst), and Union Carbide. This is actually a natural draft wet cooling hyperboloid towers (it doesn't use fan). The photo is taken from FreeFoto.com.
