A contract for positioning the very first geothermal power exploratory well in Yemen had been signed by the Geological Survey Authority and Mineral Wealth a week ago at a cost associated with USD 1.8 million for the use of generating electrical power. It was authorized by Ismail Al-Ganad, Geological Survey Authority Chairman and Chairman associated with Al-Madhla’e Al-Madhla’e, Mansor.
As per to the agreement, Al-Madhla’e firm in co-operation by Icelandic ISOR organization will exercise the first pursuit nicely in a depth associated with 2500 yards within Allisi region within Dhamar governorate. The well may discover causes of geothermal power energy in order to use all of them within the generation associated with electrical energy within the Geothermal power Energy Project.
The well project had been applied through funding from the US Nation and government give as well as underneath the supervision associated with Italian as well as Indonesia aspect.
Al- Ganad described how the project is designed look around the resources of the geothermal power power and looking for new energy for producing electrical power in co-operation along with power study center in Italy as well as nature sciences institute in Germany. He pointed out that the expert carried out research for all sites that have geothermal power assets within Yemen.
Al-Ganad mentioned that the authority conducted the survey for those sites which have causes of geothermal energy within Yemen and accumulating drinking water samples as well as warm gas as well as chemically analyzed at the Italian University associated with Florencia in between Mid 2001 as well as 2006. “During the past two years, the Expert conducting studies associated with geological, geochemical as well as comprehensive geophysical in the first region chosen with regard to drilling in the area associated with Allisi -- Asbil within Dhamar governorate,” he explained. Ali Al-Sabri, Deputy Project Manager asserted they are moving the gear towards the website as well as preparing this to begin function after the Christmas holidays under with guidance of the ISOR organization consultant. “The function time period is actually eight months based on the contract and perhaps it will be less that period,” he said.
Al-Ganad also verified on the need for the task which will open up a wide opportunity within Yemen in generating the electrical energy in the new as well as clean assets.
This year, the actual vegetation produced 8.7 million kilowatt hrs, upward through 6.6 million kilowatt hrs last year, he mentioned. During the driest a long time within the previous decade, power grows output shrunk beneath 5 billion kilowatt hrs in 07 and 2008, Swenson mentioned.
