Ormat will pay a dividend of $0.04 per share on August 23, and said that it expects to pay another dividend of the same amount for the third quarter.
Bronicki said, "We continued to win orders and strengthen our already robust backlog. In July, we announced the closing of a $61.4 million engineering, procurement and construction contract with Enel Green Power North America, maintaining our robust product backlog of $242 million. On the electricity side, we recently received off-taker approval of the commercial operation date for our Tuscarora power plant. In addition, we successfully completed the construction of the 30-MW McGinness Hills geothermal power plant demonstrating the strength of our vertically integrated structure to move from green field to production. This power plant, which has been in full operation since June, increased the total generating capacity of our portfolio to 586 MW."
