Geothermal plant likely to be built in Vanua Levu

November 30, 2015 5:31 pm

A geothermal plant to help solve the supply of electricity in the country is likely to be built in Vanua Levu, if appropriate investors are found.

A University of the South Pacific Professor, Geologist and Petrolgist, Dr Holger Sommer told FBC news he is carrying out a research around geothermal energy and it will take three years to complete.

However, he says the lifting of the divine stone in the shape of a snake god, the hot springs near the roads along Savusavu to Labasa are all indications of a pure green energy underground.

“It is actually the most powerful energy nowadays. It is a geothermal energy because it is running 24 hours. If you are looking for solar collectors then they are only working when the sun is shining; if you are looking for wind mill then it is only working when the wind is blowing, but geothermal power is working 24 hours, seven days, three years.”

A conference will be organised in the middle of next year to get engineers, investors, locals and government to get on board to discuss further.

He adds this could be a first for Fiji and cater for the entire population once successful.
