Bertrand Gautier, Novusmodus partner, said: 'Geothermal International is a world class company with a superb future. It is the clear leader in both the UK and European GSHP sectors and is well positioned in international markets to expand rapidly. GI has set industry benchmarks as a pioneer in the large scale GSHP market, and we look forward to helping it to accelerate this growth.'
Brian Davidson, CEO of Geothermal International, said: 'We are delighted with the investment from ESB Novusmodus, a partner that understands the transformation we are effecting. With our latest acquisition in the US, the beginning of the RHI in the UK, and further regulatory benefits on the horizon, it is an exciting time for Geothermal International and for the industry as a whole.'
