Entiv files to build new geothermal power plant in Oregon

Entiv Organic Energy has applied for construction permits for its proposed 9.7 megawatt Klamath Falls geothermal project in Oregon.

The energy company, which is led by local farmer Mike Noonan,  would lease the land where the project will be located. The high-volume, low-heat geothermal energy plant would sit on private land in the Klamath Basin, the Klamath Falls Herald and News reported.

"We have spent a considerable amount of time finalizing our plant design and financial model to make sure we have a project that will deliver long-term benefits to the region," said Doug Badger, spokesman for Entiv. "We're now comfortable moving forward and are excited to begin construction."

Entiv is using technology developed by French company Technip and partnering with Iceland-based Mannvit for the project, according to the Herald and News.

The construction permits were filed with Klamath County. Entiv needs to begin construction on the geothermal plant this year in order to qualify for a federal tax credit, the source said.
