(ADPnews) - Oct 26, 2010 - The hot springs rich Kamchatka region in northeastern Russia may become home to a new geothermal power station thanks to a Russian-Icelandic cooperation.
Russia's energy minister Sergei Shmatko announced on Monday that both countries are in talks about large geothermal project and possible construction of a power-intensive metallurgy plant.
Shmatko revealed that he had already made some visits to large Icelandic enterprises, which use hot springs as an energy source.
