The UDDGP project is the first geothermal power plant in the UK. It is funded by a mixture of public and private funds to include the European Regional Development Fund, Cornwall Council and Thrive Renewables plc. The aim of the project is to produce power and heat from the hot granite rocks beneath Cornwall at the United Downs Industrial Site near Redruth. Two deep, directional wells have successfully been drilled; the production well to a depth of 5275m and the injection well to 2393m. Both wells have intersected the target Porthtowan Fault Zone located approximately 800m to the west of the site.
