Trias Westland starts delivery of geothermal heat!

Since this week, growers who are members of TRIAS Westland can make use of the supply of geothermal heat. After two months of delay, the geothermal pit at Lange Broekweg in Naaldwijk is finally up and running, according to the WOS.

The geothermal energy project was initially scheduled to come on stream in mid-May, but this had to be postponed due to problems. At a depth of 2.3 kilometres, the small openings had become clogged, so that the water could only partially flow into the subsoil. In the meantime, the injection well has been thoroughly cleaned.
At Trias, geothermal energy is extracted at a depth of 2.3 kilometres in the earth. Initially, the intention was to extract geothermal energy at a depth of 4 kilometres, but this turned out to be unfeasible. Geothermal heat is now supplied to 26 horticulturalists. The heat from the source amounts to approximately 20 MWth. This is equivalent to the energy consumption of 15,000 to 20,000 households per year.
There will almost certainly be a second geothermal pit, in addition to the one that already exists. Participants of Trias who were unable to use the heat from the first doublet will still have the opportunity to supply #horticulure #geothermalheat. Source 19-07-2019 11:04 | WOS
