Turnkey Concrete Cooling Solutions

Turnkey Concrete Cooling Tower


Gactel Turnkey Projects Limited has experience of making very large size concrete cooling towers. Making of concrete structure requires intricate understanding of the working of cooling towers. The structure and foundation has to be designed not only for wind and seismic loads but also to withstand vibrations coming from fan-motor-gear box assembly for long periods of time. Continuous contact with water makes the structure vulnerable to fungi, algae growth as well decay and deposit due to the poor water quality used in re-circulating water system.

GTPL which is backed by the experience of Gammon in building large cooling towers is well capable of taking the design at a very high level, where concrete cooling tower can be made on turnkey basis fulfilling all requirements of the customer. In house design and execution team can handle any complex requirement of cooling tower. GTPL is capable of handling extensive pipe work, electrical work upto installation of substation, water treatment, instrumentation work ranging from small process control to integration with DCS etc. required for cooling tower on turnkey basis in a project.

To summarize whatever the requirement may be in cooling water system, GTPL is capable of providing it as a turnkey solution…

Counter Flow Cooling Towers – Gactel Turnkey Projects Limited offers concrete based counter flow cooling towers. In these cooling towers air takes away heat when it flows opposite to the falling water. These towers can be customized as per the requirements of the customers with a range of options in piping, electrical, instrumentation, heat transfer media ie fills, water treatment etc. They are offered both in turnkey or without civil works.

Cross Flow Cooling Towers – Gactel Turnkey Projects Limited offers concrete based cross flow cooling towers. In these cooling towers air takes away heat from water when it flows at perpendicular direction to the falling water. These towers can be customized as per the requirements of the customers with a range of options in piping, electrical, instrumentation, heat transfer media ie fills, water treatment etc. These type of cooling towers are offered both in turnkey or without civil works.

Sea Water Application – Cooling towers are used for cooling hot water. When a cooling tower is near a saline ie sea water source, saline water is used in the recirculating water system. However due to the corroding effects of sea water on concrete structures special cooling tower structure along with corrosion prevention system (Impressed Current Corrosion Prevention System) is required. This system protects the reinforcing steel structure and concrete from degradation for a designed life time which is normally 50 years. The surface of the cooling tower is coated with special protection paints like polyurethanes to protect the surface from sea water contact.
