GERMANY: A 6MW geothermal heat pump method able of giving around 6,000 homes is established to be mounted in the Wilhelmsburg district of Hamburg.
In an growth of the latest Wilhelmsburg heating network operated by Hamburger Energiewerke, building of a heating plant at the geothermal energy web site is scheduled to start in spring 2024, with link to the network in spring 2025.
The job workforce has mounted exclusive filter pipes in the production borehole more than the earlier several months and carried out creation checks, for the duration of which thermal h2o was productively pumped from a depth of about 1,300m at a temperature of 48ºC. The injection examination, in which the extracted thermal water is returned to the 130m thick sandstone layer by using a next borehole, was also prosperous.
According to a examine by Germany’s Federal Ecosystem Agency, UBA, deep geothermal strength could contribute 118TWh for every calendar year to local weather-neutral heat provide by 2050. A full of 42 deep geothermal methods – defined as programs with a drilling depth of around 400m and an typical depth of 2,500m – have been executed in Germany with an mounted heat output of 417MW.
