The recooled water returns to the condenser via an energy recovery turbine, through which its pressure drops to below ambient conditions. This particular layout is also referred to as the Heller system after the Hungarian engineer who first proposed the concept. This is described by Heller and Szabo. The Heller system has found application at numerous power plants throughout the world. In 1962, a 120 MWe turbine rejecting 169 MW heat through a hyperbolic concrete natural draft dry-cooling tower was commissioned at the Rugeley power plant in Great Britain.
