The freshwater cooling loop circulates freshwater between the “cold plate” component heat exchanger and the fluid heat exchanger. The component heat exchanger removes waste heat from heat producing devices and the freshwater to seawater exchanger dumps the waste heat from the freshwater loop to seawater which is then discharged overboard.
