These authorizations will allow Borealis to go forward with drilling for the collection of geotechnical and temperature gradient information.
Alison Thompson, Borealis GeoPower CEO and president, is quoted in the article as saying:
"The questions we ask are the ones we ask every day in the oil, gas and mining industries, once people see how it works, they will realize that there are existing services, technology, innovations and regulations that are right for geothermal projects." ~translated from French.
Borealis' recent deal with Climeon for the world's first order for a geothermal power plant in Canada makes up part of these transactions, with the delivery of three 150 kW Climeon modules valued at approximately EUR 1,000,000.
