MTL's specialist Geothermal Power team have world rated skills and experience in feasibility studies, detailed geothermal powerstation and steamfield design, plant procurement, power station/steamfield construction management and commissioning. Many of the team members have worked together for 20+ years delivering successful geothermal power projects both within New Zealand and internationally.
The team are accustomed to being involved throughout all phases of power projects from concept design to handover. Our experience of commissioning geothermal plants and training plant operators translates into practicable maintainable designs.
MTL's geothermal engineering knowledge and skills are founded on New Zealand's long term and successful geothermal power industry track record. This dates back to one of the World's first geothermal power stations, Wairakei, which has been operating for over 50 years. Our designs are also influenced by our involvement in other forms of power generation and in industrial engineering projects. This allows us to apply power industry best practices to geothermal design and ensures our designs are fit for purpose leading to long term operation and ease of maintenance.
