Central America

 

 

Publications resulting from Geothermal Exploration efforts in Central America, primarily Honduras in the mid-1980s.

Photo at the right is from a flow test of one of three wells drilled at the Platanares geothermal system (circa 1986).  As of April 2012, a 30 MW power plant is finally, now planned for construction at the Platanares site.
