12 Vapors of Kamchatka

Vapors of Kamchatka

Geothermal power station is such an electric power station that generates electric energy from the heat energy of underground springs and natural warmth of the planet. Heat in the form of steam or hot water goes to the earth surface.

Russia does not have many of them, though we are going to visit one right now.

In volcanic regions, for example, like Kamchatka, ground waters are heated to the boiling point at small depth. Water goes to the surface manifesting as geysers.

It says “Specially for the dumb”

The working field of a geothermal station is a net of wells. Some of them are free, others are blocked. The working ones transfer the heat to steam turbines installed in the hall. The turbine rotates the generator. Thus, electricity is produced.

Hot heat is not very good for steel pipe lines due to numerous salts, acids, etc. Some of the condensate is separated leading to formation of ‘acidic’ brooks.

One of the brooks.

Try not to listen to the noisy pipes around and you will see the beauty of the place.

Local clay is good for health.

The place looks like another planet.

The station.

Vaporing hot steam, long pipes and weird structures with high volcano mountain on background, this was like visiting a sci-fi movie set.

  2. Up in northern Manitoba we have many hydro electric dams – generating power that we export to to America Often Canadian wheat was traded with the USSR in exchange for payment for the electric power generating dynamos

    To China, Well you think the whole world belongs to you. Why don’t you try to take the Islands back, let me guess, because Russia has a military and would kick your ass.
