The country of Guatemala is considering the issuance of a 200 MW geothermal request for proposals sometime in 2016, US Geothermal President and COO Doug Glaspey said on Nov. 10.
The company “fully supports” the government’s plan, Glaspey said during US Geothermal’s 3Q15 earnings call.
US Geothermal is currently seeking out and meeting with potential purchasers for the output from its planned El Ceibillo geothermal project in Guatemala, according to Glaspey.
With an initial development of 25 MW, the El Ceibillo geothermal project will include a flash steam power plant to be located southwest of Guatemala City.
