Geothermal management seminar for Taupo

A seminar on geothermal asset management strategies is to be held in Taupo next month.

The New Zealand Geothermal Association said the event will be held on June 21 and it will be releasing more details on its website soon.

Meanwhile the NZGA said the big drilling rig operated by Iceland Drilling has arrived on site at the Ngawha geothermal plant.

The rig will drill four wells for a 25 MW expansion of the power plant in the Northland region of the North Island.

The New Zealand Herald reported that the power plant developer and operator Top Energy aims to double current plant capacity, which stands at 25 MW with an investment of $NZ176 million.

Iceland Drilling’s HH-220 Drillmec rig arrived in late April and took about six days and 60 truck-loads to the project site.

The four wells will be two production and two re-injection wells at a depth of 1,750 metres.
