Djibouti is pushing forward with its geothermal ambitions having awarded a large construction contract for a geothermal plant to a Chinese firm recently.
Reported via the Economist, Djibouti has awarded a major contract for the construction of a geothermal power plant to a Chinese firm.
The Djibouti geothermal project has been discussed for years with Icelandic and international players involved in possible development.
Icelandic company Reykjavik Energy Invest in the past planned a 50 MW project in the country. (an old presentation is available via Google/ Quick View, but it is not available directly)
ThinkGeoEnergy reported on this before in October 2011.
