Recent developments in factory-assembled cooling tower technology can increase cooling capacity per cell by up to 50%, expanding the applications for so called “package” towers supporting HVAC and industrial processes. Although field-erected towers have long been the preferred product for process cooling in power plants and heavy industry, new robust designs and materials coupled with cost-saving building techniques now make a new generation of modular products logical alternatives for a broader range of applications.  
Mars is that much closer. The journey toward new human exploration missions beyond Earth’s orbit took a major step forward on June 28 with the successful completion of the second and final qualification test of a five-segment rocket motor for NASA’s heavy-lift Space Launch System (SLS). The motor manufacturer, Orbital ATK, based in Dulles, Va., recently confirmed the QM-2 motor performed as designed.
A manufacturing site’s central utility plant (CUP) provides 24/7 cooling for critical R&D laboratories, critical manufacturing processes, data centers and office space. Over a period of several years, campus growth had significantly increased facility energy consumption, raising costs dramatically. Simultaneously, the host state enacted a legislation to deregulate utilities, a move potentially doubling the cost of electricity.
