RENO, Nevada - Ormat Technologies, Inc. (ORA) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Orandina I S.p.A., was selected through a competitive bid process and signed a $98.8 million engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a geothermal project in Chile.
Under the EPC contract, Ormat will provide two air-cooled ORMAT® ENERGY CONVERTER (OEC) for a high enthalpy reservoir. The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-2017.

This solution delivers economic value, a positive environmental impact and mitigates deployment risk adopting its modular methodology, as recently confirmed in New Zealand and East Africa as well. This contract significantly increased our products backlog and will support future revenues for this segment.”
