Recently application of indirect seawater cooling has become popular particularly in the regions having scarcity of good quality water. This requires careful design of the overall system starting from cooling water/sea water exchangers, sea water cooling tower, cooling tower basin, seawater intake and returns basins. Attention must be paid to the interface with seawater supply canals. This paper considers important aspects of designing seawater cooling systems.
