  • Description

    The Kostroma thermal owers station will soon emerge as the world's biggest. The station's output is to equal that of the Bratsk hydropower station on the Angara River in Sibiria.

    Situated at the upper reaches of the mighty Volga, the Kostroma power plant will have a sufficient water supply for its boilers.

    The basic unit today consists of 300 thousand-kwt. steam turbines. But in the future a 1,200,000 kwt. turbine will go into operation.

    This turbine will have an output equal to that of all the electric power-stations in pre-revolutionary Russia.

    The turbines operate on black oil and natural gas.

    The Kostroma station's first unit is supplying electricity to the big industrial enterprises, and oil-fields emerging in the North.

    The new station in the Upper Volga is yet another objective in the unified power grid now building in the Soviet Union.
