    Those parabolic cooling towers, while mostly associated with nuclear power,
    are not only used at nuclear facilities. They are a very efficient way of cooling
    and are often used with coal fired and natural gas fired plants as well. :)

    Cool shot too. I have always been fascinated by their ominous look.

    It is. I know we are getting a lot of request for moving equipment into that
    plant. I guess they are looking at doing a refurb on it at some point in the
    near future. :D
