Abstract
Suggested caption: Schematic diagram of the Fenton Hill geothermal project, operated by Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, USA. The system works on the principal of a closed loop for pumping water into a well situated 2590 meters under the Jemez Plateau, New Mexico, that is surrounded by hot granitic rock at a temperature of 185 degrees C.. The water absorbs heat and is brought back to the surface under sufficient pressure to prevent it boiling. Part of the heat from the well was used to boil Freon 114 to produce a vapour that drove a small turbine which yielded 60 KW of electrical power
