Caption: Worker adjusting the pressure underneath the turbine hall of the Cruachan Power Station, Scotland, UK, in order to ensure a smooth flow of pressure. This pumped-storage hydroelectric power station takes water between Cruachan Reservoir to Loch Awe, a height difference of 396 metres. The turbine hall is located inside Ben Cruachan, a 1126 metres high mountain. It houses these four Francis turbines, which operate both as pumps and generators, capable of generating 440 MegaWatts of electricity.
