This paper encompasses a number of considerations that can be made for the design and construction of a geothermal power plant. The considerations consist of both practical approaches and economic trade-offs of design concepts. Throughout the design, simplicity is the key note in the shaping of this geothermal power plant.

During the course of the design, the elements that initially appear problematic are turned around by means of innovative design concepts, resulting in an effective and economical overall design.

This paper also discusses the impact of climate and elevation on the construction of the plant. The relation of starting construction and the season in which construction is started, is critical.

The use of easy maintainable auxiliary equipment is considered by tailoring the auxiliaries to the available overhauling facilities of the country for which the plant is designed.
