ORMAT Technologies (US), the world’s leading group on geo-thermo-electricity, was selected by PetroVietnam Power Corporation (PV Power) as its technical partner.  

Thanks to ORMAT’s technology, the sources of geo-thermo energy (water, mineral water, steam- gas mixture) will be channeled to heat-bags where a high pressure is created to warm up geo-thermo liquids. This is a closed environmentally-friendly process.  

PV Power, the chief investor, revealed that it is surveying another possible site in Quảng Ngãi Province.
