Given the known risks of global warming are discussed technical problems of increasing the efficiency of the cooling water in cooling towers at nuclear power plants. A new concept of building fill space and air windows in the cooling tower, based on the results of the analysis of the aerodynamics of the cooling towers. The results of hydrodynamic testing pieces of the proposed designs, the totality of which provides the required cooling performance of recycled water in extreme weather conditions with low wind load.

Keywords: cooling tower; the aerodynamic conditions; the speed of the air flow; flow resistance; fluid distribution.
