 Cooling towers use evaporation of water to reject heat from processes such as cooling the circulating water used in oil refineries, chemical plants, power plants and building cooling, for example.

How to map

Draw an area area of the tower's outline or set a node node at the centre.
Add the tags man_made=tower + tower:type=cooling.
