The developer of the Nevis geothermal power project on Nevis in the Caribbean, NRE Intl. has announced that global engineering group PowerEngineers has joined the development to provide EPC Review and Owner’s Representative Services.

Nevis Renewable Energy International, Inc. (NREI), the developer of the Nevis Geothermal Project in the Caribbean, in cooperation with the Nevis Island Administration, announced that Power Engineers has joined the Nevis project team to provide design review, inspection and Owner’s representative services for the construction of the Nevis Geothermal Project.

Power Engineers is a U.S.-based global consulting services and engineering firm specializing in the delivery of integrated solutions in a wide range of industries. Power Engineers has been the engineer for more than 1,000 MW of new geothermal generating capacity, in locations ranging from the U.S., Indonesia, the Philippines, Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Kenya, and Turkey.

According to Bruce Cutright, CEO of NREI, “The addition of Power Engineers is the latest example of our push to ensure that we have the best and most capable team in place to develop the Nevis geothermal plant.”

The Nevis Geothermal Project is a 10 MW geothermal power generation project located on the former Hamilton Estates Property on the Island of Nevis, Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, Eastern Caribbean. The Nevis Island Administration is a partner and co-developer of the project with NREI. Once developed, the geothermal plant will enable the island to transition away from the use of fossil fuels and be 100 percent reliant on zero emission renewable energy power generation. NREI and NIA have completed extensive investigations to define the geothermal reservoir beneath the island, completed the well testing necessary and are now in the final design stages prior to construction start.

NREI is a subsidiary of Thermal Energy Partners, LLC, a geothermal energy development firm based in Austin, Texas.
