Novo-Ryazan Thermal Power Plant

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Here's a nice aerial view of one of Russia's largest power plants, compliments of AirVuz contributor romanblats.  The Novo-Ryazan Thermal Power Plant is located in the town of Novomichurinsk in the Ryazan Oblast, about 285 km (around 170 mi.) southeast of Moscow.  It's powered by a type of low-grade coal called lignite.  With a rated capacity of about 3.1 gigawatts, the plant is the country's fifth-largest electricity generating station.  Commissioned in 1971, its 320 meter (1.05k ft.) chimney is one of the world's tallest.
