Howden Netherlands at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games
Howden Netherlands from Hengelo installed cooling fans for 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. The cooling tower is a 180MW power station with 20 cooling fans. The fan attenuation increases the air flow through the cooling tower. This steam-turbine is more efficient and consequently the gas-turbine consumes less gas.
