In terms of Toshiba’s technology offering, Mr Takagi particularly highlighted the innovative ‘Geoportable™’ , a small-scale geothermal power generation plant that showcases Toshiba’s cutting-edge technology.

Takagi explained, “the capacity of the plant ranges from 1 or 2 MW to around 20 MW,” and emphasized its ability to begin generating electricity as soon as steam resources are available on the surface.

Additionally, he noted that: “the plant could be installed and operated in the early stages of development to evaluate steam resources and plant conditions, laying the foundation for the construction of large-scale power plants in the future.”
