Thermal power station. Piping circulating heat within a combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) unit at a thermal power station. CCGT units use additional cycles of electricity generation to ensure increased efficiency. The heat left over from one cycle is used in the next in a series of turbines, until the maximum possible amount of energy has been extracted. This is a PGU-450 model, in use at the TETs-21 thermal power station operated by the company Mosenergo. Photographed in 2008, in Moscow, Russia.
