Cooling towers

Cooling towers and evaporative condensers help to remove excess heat from sites like power stations or chemical plants.

Businesses in Ealing must tell the council if their commercial site uses a cooling tower or evaporative condenser.


You must tell your council in writing if you have a cooling tower or evaporative condenser, unless:

  • it contains no water that’s exposed to air
  • it's water supply is not connected
  • it's electrical supply is not connected

If you make any changes to your cooling tower or evaporative condenser, you must tell your council about them in writing immediately.
