Ormat Industries Ltd. to Pay Compensation of $375 Million in Lawsuit Brought by Two Former Employees

Ormat Industries Ltd. have to pay compensation of $375 million in a lawsuit brought by two former employees who claim that the company defrauded the authorities in the US, or are the claims baseless, as the company insists. In a legal proceeding opened against the company in 2014, two former employees, Tina Calilung and Jamie Kell, alleged that Ormat committed fraudulent acts that led to it receiving grants amounting to $137 million from the US government as part of the government's program of incentives in power production. The lawsuit is being conducted under a "qui tam" procedure under the US False Claims Act that allows people who expose corruption to sue for unlawful expenditure on behalf of the government and to receive 35% of the money. It should be recalled that Ormat encountered technical difficulties with this power plant, which it reported at the time, and for which it made provisions in its 2010 financial statements because of the postponement of commercial operation. According to the claimants, Ormat also made misrepresentations about the Puna power plant in Hawaii. In April this year, the Nevada District Court rejected applications from both sides in the case: Ormat's application for a summary proceeding, and the claimants' application to present a new response to the court. The legal proceeding is currently at the discovery stage which is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
