October Site Visit And Ormat Introduction
Updated: Nov 16, 2021
As a result of the intent to award announcement to Ormat Technologies, corporate representatives scheduled a tour and site visit of Chena Hot Springs and Unalaska (site of the Makushin Geothermal Project).
The purpose of the working trip was to confirm relationships and understanding of logistics with sight visits, meetings and introductions establishing a baseline for the project. The group initially gathered at Chena Hot Springs to tour the integrated geothermal facility and formulate planning strategies.
The delegation traveled together to Unalaska continuing meetings with local officials, Ounalashka shareholders and utility experts, followed by site visits via vessel to the construction camp and road being built, and later a flight to the plateau on the eastern flanks of Makushin volcano chosen for the power plant site.
Below are pictures telling the story of the site visit, project progress and concrete steps being made for a 3ow geothermal power plant on Unalaska.
