Contact Energy granted Ohaaki resource consents
Contact Energy Limited (Contact) owns and operates the Ohaaki Geothermal Power Plant 26 km north east of Taupō on land leased from Ngāti Tahu.
In April 2013 Contact applied for new resource consents to continue its operation.
By a decision of Commissioners appointed by Waikato Regional Council and the Waikato River Authority to hear the applications, resource consents have now been granted, as sought, for a term of 35 years and for a take of 40,000 tonnes per day of geothermal fluid. The consents granted are subject to conditions that do not differ materially from those sought. Contact welcomes the decision and looks forward to continuing its positive relationship with the local community.
