Aberystwyth Power Station
Aberystwyth power stationAberystwyth power station supplied electricity to the town of Aberystwyth from 1895 to the 1970s. The oil-engine station was operated by a succession of private and public owners including Aberystwyth Corporation prior to the nationalisation of the electricity industry in 1948. The power station, with an ultimate capacity of 5 MW, was redeveloped as demand for electricity grew and old plant was replaced.â â â â â âBarcelona power stationBarcelona power station (also Power station of Barcelona) is a combined cycle thermoelectric plant located at Pier Energy of Port of Barcelona, in Barcelona, Spain. It has 2 thermal units of 425 MW, which use natural gas as fuel, and with a total electric power of 850 MW. It is owned by the multinational company Gas Natural. .â â â â â âSahofika Hydroelectric Power StationSahofika Hydroelectric Power Station, also referred to as Sahofika Power Station, is a 205 megawatts (275,000 hp) hydroelectric power station under construction in Madagascar.â â â â â âThermal power station - WikipediaOther types of power stations are subject to different efficiency limitations. Most hydropower stations in the United States are about 90 percent efficient in converting the energy of falling water into electricity while the efficiency of a wind turbine is limited by Betz's law, to about 59.3%, and actual wind turbines show lower efficiency.â â â â â âRÃ¢ul Mare Hydroelectric Power StationRÃ¢ul Mare Hydro Power Plant is a large power plant on RÃ¢ul Mare River, a river situated in Romania. The project was started and finished in the 1980s and it was made up by the construction of the Gura Apelor Dam, which was equipped with two hydrounits, the hydropower plant having an installed capacity of 335 MW. The power plant generates 650 GWh of electricity per year.â â â â â âThe Power Station (art space)The Power Station is a not-for-profit contemporary art space in Exposition Park, Dallas. It is housed in a former Dallas Power & Light building which was constructed in 1920, and hosts large scale exhibitions which complement the building's raw architecture. For each of its international exhibitions, The Power Station works with the artists to produce a publication in conjunction with their project. Its programming also includes a summer exhibition and additional events each year. The building includes an apartment where artists can live as they create and build their installations. "The building and garden relate to one another gently through the careful manipulation of crisp architectural elements that are then intentionally eroded by more informal, lush plant material. ".â â â â â âMoolamattom Power StationMoolamattom Power Station is the biggest underground Hydro-electric Project in India. The water from the Idukki Dam is carried by the underground pipes to the power station. The installed capacity of the Power House is 780 MW consisting of 6 generator units of 130 MW each. The regulated waters of Periyar falls through a drop of about 669.2 metres (2195 feet) while generating power in the underground power house. The tail waters makes Thodupuzha river at Thriveni sangamam which is 1 km. from Moolamattom Power Station. Project work on this power station was initiated by Sri. E.U.Philipose, Superintending Engineer, Kerala State Electricity Board in 1964. Visitors are restricted to enter the Moolamattom Power Station due to security reasons.â â â â â âKinsale Road power stationKinsale Road power station is a 1.8MW gas-fired combined heat and power electricity generating station which uses the methane gas released from decomposing organic matter in the adjoining landfill site as its fuel source. The site supplies approximately 4% of Cork City's power demand.â â â â â âLa Jourdanie (power station)La Jourdanie is a barrage and hydroelectric power station on the River Tarn in Broquis in Aveyron, southern France. The barrage was built in 1932, and the station has two Kaplan turbines and two helical turbines generating 18 megawatts (24,000 hp). The dam is 145 metres (476 ft) long and 17 metres (56 ft) high.â â â â â âPapenoo Hydroelectric Power StationThe Papenoo Hydroelectric Power Station is located near the commune of Papenoo on the island Tahiti in the overseas country of France, French Polynesia. It has an installed capacity of 28 MW and was constructed between 1989 and 1994. The hydroelectric power station is owned by Electricite de Tahiti SA. It is the largest hydroelectric power station in Tahiti. It uses water provided by five reservoirs high up in the Papenoo Valley, above the commune. Each reservoir is created on the Papenoo River or a tributary by an embankment dam.
