Imaggeo On Monday: Green Energy of Kamchatka

The Mutnovsky Geothermal Power Plant is the largest geothermal power plant in Russia (the time of writing). It is located near to volcanic mountain Mutnovsky at altitude of 800 m and has a capacity of 50 MW. The Mutnovsky Geothermal Power Plant has resolved the problem of raising the stability of the power supply for the Kamchatka region, at the expense of using the richest stocks of thermal heat of the Earth – on the condition of the conservation of ecology in the most populous region of Kamchatka Peninsula.
