A geothermal power plant operated by Ormat Technologies in Guatemala has been affected by storm Agatha.

The 20MW plant’s gathering system was damaged by the storm, but it did not suffer any damages from the volcanic eruption of Volcan de Pacya that preceded the storm.

The plant was temporarily shut down on 28 May to protect it from the effects of the volcanic eruption.

Most of the wells will be connected to the plant and it will resume partial operation once the volcanic ash is cleared up, according to a company statement.

Ormat has not yet set a particular date for the plant to resume full operation.
