On Mutnovsky Geothermal Power Plant (Kamchatka) launched a new geothermal well

"Geoterm" prematurely put into operation a new well on Mutnovsky geothermal field. Due to its commissioning available capacity Mutnovskaya Geothermal Power Plant-1 increased by an average of 5 MW and currently stands at 47.5 MW.

  • Mutnovskaya-1 Geothermal Power Plant was commissioned in 2002
  • Mutnovskaya-1 Geothermal Power Plant was commissioned in 2002

The well depth of 2,186 meters was drilled in the spring and is one of the deepest in the geothermal field. During the summer, the staff of power plants was the complex of works on elimination of hydraulic resistance in the collection and transportation of the coolant and the commissioning of a drilled well. After completion of the design and construction of the road water mixture well incorporated into the existing production wells Mutnovskaya GeoES 1.

In order to maintain the available capacity and stable operation of geothermal power plants is necessary drilling and commissioning of new wells. Prior to 2017 and is planned to drill four more wells repaired. Implementation of the program will ensure the stable operation of the station in accordance with an installed capacity of 50 MW and a 10-15-percent reserve steam resource.

Currently, the technology cycle geothermal power plants involved 14 wells that meet all the necessary parameters for the production of electricity.
