Stunning Images From Space As "Widening & Advancing" Lava Flow Reaches Hawaii Power Plant

Post by Doka » 05-27-2018 12:56 PM

Have been wondering, what will happen to the geothermal plant when and if the lava flow engulfs it.? You can blame anything you want, but doesn't stop the lava, from doing it's thing. Interesting, that the plant is owned by the Israelies ? My 1st guess would have been Japanese . Stay tuned.............As no one knows the effects of the lava on the plant....... :?:

In just the past 24 hours there were between 250 and 270 earthquakes at Kilauea’s summit, with four explosions on Saturday sending ash to altitudes as high as 12,000-15,000 feet, said Stovall and National Weather Service meteorologist John Bravender.

Since Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano began a once-in-a-century-scale eruption May 3, authorities have shutdown the plant, removed 60,000 gallons of flammable liquid and deactivated wells that tap into steam and gas deep in the Earth’s core.

But,  as Reuters reports, lava has never engulfed a geothermal plant anywhere in the world and the potential threat is untested, according to the head of the state’s emergency management agency.

Residents have complained of health hazards from emissions from the plant since it went online in 1989 and PGV has been the target of lawsuits challenging its location on the flank of one of the world’s most active volcanoes.

The Israeli-owned 38 megawatt plant typically provides around 25 percent of electricity on the Big Island,according to local power utility Hawaii Electric Light.

Operator Ormat Technologies last week said there was no above-ground damage to the plant but it would have to wait until the situation stabilized to assess the impact of earthquakes and subterranean lava flows on the wells.

Riddick added the nice pic and caption, "Lava, lava eveywhere!" Maybe on purpose, it's missing something there, like the r. :? :lol:

Would you believe it got too close to the lava and burned away?
