Spanish infrastructure and construction firm Sacyr is planning the development of up to three geothermal heating plants in Almeria, in the South of Spain.

Geothermal resources have been discovered in Almeria in the South of Spain. Called Nijar, the field features a geothermal reservoir at a depth of 490 meters with an average temperature of 42 degrees Celsius.

Now, Sacyr International multinational infrastructure and service company, headquartered in Spain, is planning  to build a geothermal plant starting in August this year

Following a second survey on the resource area, the initial capacity could potentially double.

Initial development plans see the construction of three plants in just two years and a faster development after that. There are several agricultural firms who have already signed up as customers for the plants.
