Geothermal energy reality in two years

Firstly, A Correction

It took a while to find where we erred in ‘fact’ in the above headlined story in the August 13 issue of The Montserrat Reporter (TMR) as we were so advised by a spokesman for the CRM (Committee for the Redevelopment of Montserrat). The error was in the last paragraph of the article, and we must apologise to the Committee therefor.

It however offers an easy opportunity, not only to correct the error but also to expand, on a matter that is considered to be a most important development in the economic and everyday life of Montserrat.

The article stated: “…MGC could source a complete generating plant for Eighty thousand pounds, approximately EC$350,000.” The figure of £80,000 was in connection with the availability of a ‘reconditioned diesel generator’ similar to those still in Plymouth.

Sam Rhys Williams, whose expertise among others is in Electrical Engineering, is one of the CRM members and director in Montserrat Geothermal Co. (MGC). He explains that CRM carried out extensive research and advised government of the availability a complete new generating plant at a cost of EC$12 million approximately £2.86 million at today’s exchange rate.

He said that also available out of the U.K. at a price of $8 million are four reconditioned one (1) mgw generators, which in his opinion would be a better choice, since two of these can carry Montserrat with two available as standbys. Also available are two – two (2) mgw generators (also reconditioned) at a price of $6 million. These three options have been submitted to government as alternatives to meet any compulsive immediate need that may be necessary.

Of course all of this CRM argues must be taken on board with the consideration that Geothermal energy could be available in a reasonably short space of time.
