Abstract:

The article mentions a geothermal power plant in Kamachatka using 200-300 degrees steam as the power source, at an efficiency of about 10. It further mentions an extensive geothermal field in Kamchatka, with a water temperature of 80-90C, in which the exhaust steam heats freon, which runs a secondary generator. Creation of an artificial magma chamber with a 100 megaton thermonuclear device is proposed, to supply a geothermal power plant by means of heat pipes.
