Natures Flame Heat Plant Works
Tauhara Steam Field
Nature’s Flame has been operating the Taupo Pellet Plant since 2009. The plant was originally designed to be expanded in stages, up to a throughput of 170 ktpa.
This project took the plant from 40 ktpa to 85 ktpa.
This upgrade replaced the existing Hot Water System from the existing 6 MW Boiler to a Geothermal Energy Supply.
WCL was engaged to construct the primary circuit which involved installation of the heat exchanger and associated pipework, pond, 2-phase fluid mixer, gas vent, vent drains bypasses and access platforms.
