NGP restarts Faulkner 1, updates drilling projects

In Canada, Nevada Geothermal Power Inc. has re-started the Faulkner 1 power plant. A temporary solution allowed two of the three generators to be restarted at reduced output levels. Engineering considerations limited start-up output to 13 net MW. The plant shut down in mid-January due to cable system failure. Permanent repairs remain on schedule and the plant is expected to be fully operational by early March. The company also completed drilling production well 91-15 and installing a slotted liner to 8315 ft. NGP finished a pipeline connecting new injection well 55-15 to the plant while injection well 58-11 is expected to be connected and in service in several weeks. When all work is complete, the three wells will bring Faulkner 1 to a net output of 45 MW. The company also provided updates on its Crump Geyser and Pumpernickel Valley projects, which remain on schedule to be placed in service by the end of 2013.
