Construction

Geothermal plant construction
The fourth phase will last approximately two years and includes construction, production drilling, construction and the start-up of the power plant.

The final phase of drilling will be development drilling to provide the additional steam required for commercial operation. Studies of the resource will be refined through the exploration and appraisal phases and identify the target area for the final production wells that will supply the additional steam needed to reach the plant’s predicted operating power capacity.  Construction of surface facilities will also take place, including the steam field pipe work and power plant infrastructure including the turbine.
