Air-cooled cooling has advantages compared to cooling with water. More and more fresh watercooling (rivers, lakes and below ground) is disallowed because of its potential thermal and bio-pollution. Sea water requires the use of expensive materials because of its high corrosion potential.
Air-cooled cooling also has one main disadvantage: it requires a lot of plot space so that on offshore rigs space might become a particularly big problem. Here is the story of how to design ultra compact air-cooled coolers that fulfil the stringent space requirements on platforms.
