Geothermal power plant process flow diagram, showing direct contact condenser and hybrid ejector/vacuum pump gas removal system. Steam is supplied from the flash separation process at a single pressure. Steam exiting the turbine is condensed in a direct contact condenser, supplied with cold water from a cross-flow cooling tower. The condensed steam and the cooling water are returned to the cooling tower. Brine, condensate, and cooling tower blow-down are injected back into the geothermal reservoir.
