Another shot of Seattle Steam Company showing a little bit of steam escaping.
Have a good day and thanks for stopping by John's Island. And we hope there is nothing here to get anyone steamed up!

Pictures from John's walks and more ... Most of my daily walks are along The Elliott Bay Trail which is along Seattle's waterfront...
You have fogged up my glasses.ReplyDelete
An interesting post as I have never given much thought to a steam plant.ReplyDelete
Wonder what fuel they use to heat the water to make steam? Coal, gas, fuel oil. Hope the EPA doesn't shut it down like they have in Texas.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the link. I see the majority of the steam is produced by burning natural gas which is a fossil fuel but it burns pretty clean. It did not mention the source of the water but I don't think you can use sea water because the residue produced would clog up the pipes. I see they have been making steam since 1893 so it must work economically and efficiently.ReplyDelete
