The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) has taken the extraordinary action of retrofitting the Bang Pakong Power Station with one of the world's largest cooling tower installations. The cooling towers are installed as helper cooling towers, with the purpose of reducing the temperature of the circulating water discharged from the power station into the Bang Pakong River. This project represents a progressive and proactive approach to current and future environmental impacts associated with the thermal circulating water system discharge at the power station.
