Kalisindh Thermal Power Station is located 12 km away from Jhalawar town in Jhalawar district, Rajasthan state in western India. The power plant is operated by Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd (RVUNL).
Water for the plant is provided by the Kalisindh Dam reservoir, near Bhanwarasi village. Coal for the plant will be sourced from Paras east and Kanta basin coal blocks in Chhattisgarh state.
The chimney at Kalisindh Thermal Power Station has a height of 275 metres. The two cooling towers of the facility are 202 metres tall and the tallest in the world.
A cooling tower is a heat rejection device that rejects waste heat to the atmosphere through the cooling of a water stream to a lower temperature. Cooling towers may either use the evaporation of water to remove process heat and cool the working fluid to near the wet-bulb air temperature or, in the case of closed circuit dry cooling towers, rely solely on air to cool the working fluid to near the dry-bulb air temperature.
Common applications include cooling the circulating water used in oil refineries, petrochemical and other chemical plants, thermal power stations, nuclear power stations and HVAC systems for cooling buildings.
