Russian Geothermal Power Stations

Posted on May 22, 2014 by tim

Kamchatka is the land of the living volcanoes. But people have learned how to get benefit from volcanoes. Only 50 people work at the Mutnovsko Geothermal energy plant, which supplies a third of central Kamchatka with energy.

The first, an experimental Pauzhetskaya Geothermal energy plant, was built in Kamchatka half a century ago, and the most  powerful, the industrial Mutnovskaya 50 MWt Geothermal Power Plant, was launched in 2002. This is one of the most modern geothermal plants in the world. Steam is created by using 14 wells with depths ranging from 900 to 2250 meters.

    Those 50 people are the cleverest one.. How may years will they serve there ? 55 years old or 60 years old ?

    Thank you for posting these great photographs! I love industrial bases that are located in extreme cold locations. It must be amazing place to work at, the getaway for mind to progress and learn as well as create! Could you also do the coverage of the Russian new gaz rig in the northern sea?
