Pre-feasibility study for the Wotten Waven geothermal project

As part of the INTERREG IIIB European programme, the Dominican Republic and the French partners have carried out a pre-feasibility study concerning the development of the high-temperature field at Wotten Waven, Dominica. The goal is to supply the domestic market and export the surplus via undersea cables to the neighbouring French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique.
The project has a forecast capacity of 120 MW, with about 20 MW destined for the domestic market, 50 MW exported to Guadeloupe and 50 MW exported to Martinique.
