NGAWHA AND THE BAY OF ISLANDS GEOTHERMAL ZONE2 A. Ngawha Springs: A Chronology _ In this section a short chronology setting out the main events in the modern history of Ngawha Springs follows.

The system also pipes cooled brine and steam condensate to reinjection wells. The Ngawha geothermal field is the only high temperature geothermal resource in the north of New Zealand. (Figure 1). Hot springs near the Ngawha Village are used for bathing and the area was mined for mercury until The expansion of the Ngawha Geothermal Power Station creates a more affordable, reliable and secure electricity supply for the Far North.

Once complete, generation capacity will more than double to 57 Megawatts. Installation of power station, geothermal pipeline and electricity transmission system equipment is in progress with upwards of The Village. Ngawha Springs village is located in the centre of an active geothermal field.

This field covers an area of around 25 km². It is much smaller than the only other geothermal field in New Zealand, the Taupo Volcanic Zone. However, its springs reveal the unique minerals content and world-famous curative properties. Main Ngawha Geothermal Springs: Tiger bath, Ginns’ bath, Waiariki bath.

The hot springs arising in this area are slightly acidic and are rich in ammonia, bicarbonate, boron and mercury, which is not typical of other springs in New Zealand.

It’s full steam ahead for the expansion of the Ngawha geothermal power station following major transaction approval from the Top Energy Consumer Trust and Top Energy Board.

Top Energy Chief Executive Russell Shaw says this was the final hurdle the company had to pass to commit to a construction programme to expand the station to 53MW by June Waiariki pools Ngawha Springs is a truly unique place.

The Ngawha Springs are located in the centre of a geothermally active area: an area that produces a considerable amount of Northland’s electricity – all while feeding over over a dozen hot pools of all sorts of colours, element make ups and temperatures.

Ngawha Geothermal Area is a known Geothermal Resource Area. "CV-2a: Plutonic - Recent or Active Volcanism, CV-2b: Plutonic - Inactive Volcanism" is not in the list of possible values (CV-1a: Magmatic - Extrusive, CV-1b: Magmatic - Intrusive, CV-2a: Plutonic - Recent or Active Volcanism, CV-2b: Plutonic - Inactive Volcanism, CV Extensional Domain, CD.

The Ngawha geothermal system is atypical of New Zealand geothermal systems, being located outside the Taupo Volcanic Zone, and contained in tight sedimentary structures.

As you enter Ngawha Springs go down the hill pass the hall and stay to your RIGHT (not left), go down the loose metal road and the pools are beside Lake Tuwhakino and in front of the old guest house [debbie, ]. Kawerau and Ngawha high-temperature geothermal fields (Christenson,Skinner,Sheppard & Giggenbach, ) were chosen for trial testing of the sampler.

At both fields, downhole sampling was undertaken on deep vertical wells used for monitoring; i.e. these wells are not used for by: A large geothermal power station operates in this area and provides seventy percent of Northland’s electricity.

We pulled up at the Waiariki Pools, an establishment that is intentionally run in a low-key manner by the Parahirahi Trust. Another company operates around the corner as Ginn’s Ngawha Spa.

Apparently George Ginn purchased his spa. Panoramic image of work underway at Ngawha, including a large sediment pond, to prepare a well drilling site for a new geothermal power station.

Photo / Top Energy By: Peter de Graaf. Geothermal systems occur in many parts of New Zealand. High temperature geothermal fields are principally located in the Taupo Volcanic Zone, with another high temperature field at Ngawha in Northland.

Moderate to low and very low temperature systems are more widely scattered. Some are associated with areas of young volcanism: in Northland, Hauraki Plains, and [ ]. Ltd's mill at Kawerau has an annual production capacity oftonnes of Newsprint andtonnes of Kraft pulp.

The mill electrical requirement amounts to MW. Geothermal steam has a significant impact on the mill energy balance and contributes around 35% of the mills steam by: 7.
