Enel Green Power looks to expand geothermal facility in Utah

Enel Green Power North America Inc. has submitted a proposal to expand its geothermal electricity generating facilities at Cove Fort, Utah, said the U.S. Bureau of Land Management office in Utah in a brief Feb. 12 notice on its Environmental Bulletin Board.

The notice said environmental assessments will be written on this proposal by both BLM and the U.S. Forest Service.

“The proposal includes drilling six new wells on Federal lands (5 on Fishlake National Forest and 1 on BLM, Cedar City Field Office) as well as a brine gathering system. This environmental assessment will be prepared for
BLM by a third party contractor in coordination with the Fishlake EA.”

The Cove Fort II Geothermal Facility would be located north and northeast of Enel’s existing geothermal facilities at Cove Fort.
