Vertically Integrated

Ormat’s is the world’s only vertically integrated geothermal company that explores, drills, designs, builds, manufactures, owns, finances and operates geothermal power plants.

What is Vertical Integration?

Intensive involvement and know-how. At every stage of the supply value chain.

Ormat has deep insight and experience with every link of the supply value chain, and we leverage it to advance technology, reduce lifecycle costs, ensure quality and develop geothermal resources and the power plants that harness their energy to maximize return on investment.
