Geothermal Engineering Ltd

Geothermal Engineering has brought geothermal specialists together with industry partners to develop the first large-scale deep geothermal power plant in the UK at United Downs near Redruth. The project will involve: drilling and testing the deepest on shore wells in the UK (each of the three wells required for the project will be 4.5km deep); the development of a 10MW electric, 55MW thermal geothermal power plant; and the development of a geothermal centre of excellence in conjunction with Exeter University. The project has planning permission to proceed and drilling should start on the site in late 2012. When the United Downs power plant is operational, Geothermal Engineering hope to roll out similar projects across the South West to produce both electricity and renewable heat. The total target production will be 300 MW of electricity and 1GW of renewable heat across all sites within a 25 year timeframe.
