Because of the issuing of a new law concerning a new methodology, of measuring the effects of
thermal discharges in the sea, ENEL SpA carried out studies in order to modify the superficial
discharges of a few power plants into submerged discharges as the existing superficial ones
were unable to diffuse the thermal plume according to the new law requirements.
This paper shows the design guidelines and the methodology applied at ENEL-CRIS in order
to predict the plume dispersion both in the near field and in the far field in one of the examined
power plants, located in a bay with a narrow mouth to the sea.
Thermoelectric power plants need a large quantity of cooling water that is
generally pumped, through a plant intake, from a natural water body (sea, lake
or river) ...
