First well successfully drilled for geothermal greenhouse project at Bergschenhoek, Netherlands
The first well drilled for a geothermal project at Bergschenhoek in the Netherlands, successfully produces hot water, that will help heat greenhouse operations of several companies in the neighbourhood.
Reported before the weekend, the first well for the geothermal heating project at Bergschenhoek in the Netherlands has successfully been drilled.
After about 50 days of drilling, testing and preparation, the first water was pumped up at Warmtebedrijf Bergschenhoek. In a few days, it will be possible to determine how much water is coming up and what temperature it is. Then the drilling rigs start with the second bore of the return batch.
The drilling site is located on the Warmoeziersweg in Bergschenhoek next to the Hollandplant nursery greeenhouses, part of the Wayland group. Wayland Energy, also part of this group, is the developer. They are working intensively with AgroEnergy, which will be the customer of geothermal heat.
It is expected that about 15 surrounding greenhouses will be able to utilise the heat from the planned plant. The first companies can already be connected to the heating system at the end of this year. In order to achieve the best possible heat supply, a heat buffer has been centralized.
