Not being an engineer I can't tell you what all this super structure does but it certainly looks complicated.
Coal is dropped a box car at a time and carried up to furnaces that convert water to steam which powers a turbine that generates electricity.
Five trains of coal, each 100 cars long are brought down from Kansas every day to fuel the plant.
Just west of the Oologah Dam, Public Service Company of Oklahoma operates a big coal fired electrical power plant. This is only one of several around the state. They tell us that the newer coal fired plants are quite green.
