The St. Vincent Geothermal Company Limited and the Icelandic Drilling Company signed a contract in November last year that will lead to the drilling of four wells for a geothermal power project here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The project aims to deliver a 10 Megawatt Geothermal power plant to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, transforming its energy sector, reducing its dependency on imported diesel, and providing a new sustainable and affordable source of energy based on an indigenous resource.
