In the case of a serious event like a station blackout (SBO), an active cooling system may lose power leading to excessive heat build-up.

Our Residual Heat Removal Systems with Passive Cooling Technology remove heat even in the case plant power is lost. According to IAEA-TECDOC-1624 from 2009 "the use of passive safety features is a desirable method of achieving simplification and increasing the reliability of the performance of essential safety functions, and should be used wherever appropriate".
