Cooling Tower 18

Externally, the straight lines of the cooling tower betray his old age, the most recent generally having a parabolic shape. Another indication of the age of the installation, all internal infrastructures is wood.
For cons, the presence of a small house isn't normal. There was not a guy who stayed inside to take the temperature of the water !

As a reminder, you should never attempt to enter a cooling tower of an active site (whatever it is), serious health problems (legionella), even death by suffocation, are assured if you absolutely want to tempt the devil.
The visited towers are inactive for more than 10 years, the risks are much lower, even if they remain home of crap.

The falling drops of water were slowed by wooden slats.
By slowing the fall of the water, it had more time to cool before reaching the bottom of the tower.
