(Dominica News Online) The Government of Dominica says it is confident that it can deliver a geothermal power plant to the country by December 2022.
“And why I think we can do this is because we are now at the stage of finalizing our negotiations with our partners,” Ambassador to the United States of America (USA) and the Organisation of American States (OAS), Dr. Vince Henderson stated on Prime Minister Skerrit’s Annou Palé talk show on Sunday. “We have 5 bid agreements that we have been working on since April of 2020 and our target is to complete them by March 31st, 2021.”
Dr. Henderson said civil works for wells will begin in May 2021.
“We went out to tender since February 6th, for drilling of the new wells,” he revealed. “We also went out to tender last week for civil works that is expected to begin in May; so we are pretty much on our way.”
