Inside a Conventional Island - Condenser / Feed Pumps

After passing through the turbine, steam is cooled to become liquid water again before being returned to the steam generators for reuse. At Daya Bay, the cooling is provided by water taken in from the sea at 45 tonnes per second, with the sea water flowing inside tubes, which physically separate the sea water from the steam that is being cooled.

A series of feed pumps are used to return the liquid water from the condenser to the steam generators to raise steam again.
