India: 3D MT Surveying Begins for 2 MW Gujarat Geothermal Project

ISR hopeful of tapping geothermal energy, starts survey (Niticentral)

To find out potential spots for setting up India's first geothermal power plant using heat stored below earth's surface, Institute of Seismological Research (ISR) has started surveys using latest 3D Magentotelluric (MT) imaging technology.

With the initiative, the Gandhinagar-based ISR is hopeful of making a breakthrough by finding out the most feasible source of thermal energy to set up a 2 MW geothermal power plant in Gujarat, which will be the first in the country, ISR Director Dr B K Rastogi said.
