Geothermal development continues aggressively on Nevis. In recent days, members of NREI and DOSECC Exploration Services LLC concluded a meeting in Austin, Texas. Drilling contractors DOSECC, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, are engaged to conduct and complete the well installation. DOSECC is known in the geothermal industry for its commitment to scientific integrity, core quality, safety, and risk mitigation, all of which will continue to drive forward the Nevis geothermal project. Once drilled, the geothermal reservoir data collected will measure the necessary performance data, geologic and reservoir information needed for the turbine heat exchangers and production well design.

A new era in geothermal development on Nevis has begun. Mc Levon “Mackie” Tross, local representative for geothermal developers Nevis Renewable Energy International (NREI), said the first phase of the project is expected to commence in October 2017.
In an interview with the Department of Information Sept. 12 at N3 – the geothermal production site on more than nine acres of land at Hamilton Estate – Tross said preparatory work, which began Aug. 30, is ready for the commencement of the project’s first phase.
“We started site clearing on Aug. 30 in preparation for the drilling of a new test well and that will commence in the first week in October,” he said. “We expect the equipment to be arriving at the Long Point Port around Oct. 4-5. Once the equipment gets here, with the help of the local authorities and police, we will get the equipment at this drill site in Hamilton and reassemble it since some of it would have to be disassembled for transportation and that drilling process should tak...
Following a Sept. 12 announcement by Mc Levon Mackie Tross, local representative for Nevis Renewable Energy International (NREI) on the status of the geothermal project, Brantley said the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) is heartened by the news.
“The public would know that the Nevis Island Administration has been steadfast in its pursuit of green energy and we continue to be committed to greening of the island, insofar as energy is concerned, and we look forward to geothermal becoming a reality,”

Just four days prior to the arrival of Hurricane Irma, site clearing for the Nevis Geothermal Plant was completed. This marks a milestone for the project that is slated to become the first Binary ORC Geothermal power plant in the Caribbean Islands. Follow on well drilling for the project is to begin very soon and the drilling rig for the initial phase of the geothermal project is scheduled to arrive on October 4th.
