Power Plant Earth

Description

Power Plant Earth

Power Plant Earth is an exhibition located in Reykjanesvirkjun - geothermal power plant operated by HS Orka in the Resource Park. From the "big bang theory" of how the universe evolved from the size of a grapefruit to the harnessing of geothermal energy in the Reykjanes peninsula, the exhibition shows how man utilizes different energy sources and how we benefit from it in our everyday lives.

The exhibition's most impressive showpieces are two geothermal turbine's generating 100 MW of "green" electrical power, enough to keep Reykjavík City running on a good day. The plant processes environmentally safe energy from geothermal heat in front of its guests as well as revealing the importance that mankind exploits the energy recourses of the earth in a sensible, self-sufficient and sustainable way.
