This year's GEA Expo and the GRC conference is taking place October 14-17 in Reno, Nevada. Mannvit will be exhibiting at Iceland Geothermal cluster’s booth #622 in the Expo as well as presenting two interesting papers. One on the impact of electrical grid challenges on the design of the new 90 MW Theistareykir geothermal plant. The other is a comparison study of high-temperature geothermal technology vs conventional technology. With the international geothermal power market growing and projects currently under development in all corners of the world, the 2018 Expo and GRC conference will be an exciting international gathering of geothermal industry leaders, academics, financiers, policy leaders, students, and geothermal enthusiasts.
