Dominica - Drilling of Three Exploratory Geothermal Wells in the Roseau Valley to Commence Late July
The drilling of exploratory geothermal wells in the Roseau Valley is expected to commence at the end of July this year.
The contract for the over 4.5 million Euros project was signed on Wednesday, 6th April, 2011 during a ceremony at the Public Service Training Centre in Roseau.
The contract was awarded to the Iceland Drilling Company and is being funded by the Agence Francaise de Development, the European Union and the Government of Dominica.
Project Coordinator, Jason Timothy, explained that the long term objective is to confirm the nature and extent of the potential geothermal resource at various sites within the Wotten Waven area to determine the capacity of wells for sustainable commercial exploitation in generating electric power. cont./
