Drilling Rig Team in Place As Nevis Moves Closer to Geothermal


After recent Hurricanes Irma and Maria damaged parts of the Caribbean, this week marks a major milestone in the development of geothermal on Nevis & St. Kitts that can provide a 24/7 power to other Caribbean islands.

It is estimated that Nevis has up to 300 megawatts of geothermal power and some estimates calculate as many as 650 megawatts. As Nevis becomes energy self sufficient, its renewable resources could benefit nearby island nations through the construction of a submarine cable.

With an established a goal to eliminate CO2 emissions from power generation, Nevis is committed to leverage its proven geothermal resources and become the greenest island on the planet. Nevis will be the first Caribbean island to utilize Binary Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) geothermal power generation that utilizes a closed-loop system with zero carbon emissions.

As of today, the drilling rig has been set and drilling will officially begin momentarily. This well is to confirm geothermal reservoir properties including flow rate, temperature and sustainability.
