Dikili TDIOSB in Turkey is planning to drill 7 geothermal wells for greenhouse heating for the production of fruits and vegetables.

We have previously reported that the application for geothermal resource exploration for the Dikili Agriculture-Based Specialized Greenhouse Organized Industrial Zone (TDIOSB) project, which is expected to be operational in the near future, has been accepted by the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Air Conditioning. According to a piece of news shared, Dikili TDIOSB Directorate is planning to conduct 7 geothermal resource exploration drillings at the project site.

It is aimed that Dikili TDIOSB will produce 80 thousand tons of quality fresh vegetables and fruits annually, produced in technological greenhouses, to the domestic and foreign markets. The drilling wells planned to be drilled are planned to be used in these greenhouses that will produce fruit and vegetables.

In the wells to be drilled, it is envisaged to obtain geothermal fluid at a depth of 1200 meters, with a flow rate of 75 °C and 25 L/sec. Re-injection wells will be used to return the geothermal fluid planned to be used in greenhouse heating to the reservoir area. Thus, the expected energy to be obtained from these drillings is approximately 18.7 MW and the project value is calculated as approximately 2.8 million TL.
