The length of the machine hall is 500 metres, width-130, height-64 metres.

The plant has 8 power units, but in 1997 the first ones stopped operation because the produced electricity became unnecessary.

    Is this a Geo-thermal energy plant ?

    • Scott says:

      Nope – sorry for being lazy, a little more research and I discover for myself that it is coal-fired.

    Kazakh plant. Russian technology. Polish boilers. Electricity courtesy of the Industrial Revolution.

      This is not a Kazakh plant, this area was part of Southern Siberia, and had nothing to do with Kazakhs. Kazakhs were nomadic people before Soviet times, and even did not have a written language.
      Soviets allocated this area to newly-created “Kazakh Republic” which only existed for about 50 years. Then when Soviet union broke up, along these borders, this areas went to Kazakhstan in totally arbitrary way. Every city there was founded by Russians in 18th-19th century, where before there had been just barren steppes (prairies).
