Title: Research Facility Opened in Georgia to Study Cooling Water Needs for Power Plants

A new technology that could reduce the water needed for power plant cooling is being tested, marking the beginning of research and development at the new Water Research Center (WRC) at Georgia Power’s coal-fired Plant Bowen in Cartersville, GA. According to Georgia Power, the WRC is the first U.S. research facility of its kind, providing a venue for developing and testing technologies to reduce power plant water withdrawals and consumption and improve the quality of water related to power generation. Evaluation of the new technology — a thermosyphon cooler developed by Johnson Controls, is the first project to become operational at the center.
