Tolhuaca Geothermal Project

Tolhuaca, Chile

As part of the Mighty River Power (now Mercury) team, Dr. Dan Hoyer supported the development of project descriptions and visited the site to better understand the area. He then developed the initial project layout and conceptual design of the fluid collection and injection system, which included 10 well pads and a power plant site. Dan also developed a project cost estimate to ensure the project’s feasibility.
