Costa Rican geothermal plant restarts

Thursday, February 9, 2017


After intense reconstruction work by the Costa Rican Electricity Institute  on the geothermal fluid transfer pipelines damaged during Hurricane Otto, Miravalles III resumed power generation on January 23. The plant went out of operation in November.

The damage also partially affected Miravalles I, which operated normally from December 2 and alternated from that day with Miravalles II, due to the high availability of wind and hydraulic resources.
