The Miskolc Geothermal Project wins GeoPower Market’s international award: “Best Heating Project 2013”.
The system for the utilization of geothermal heat consists of the following, easily distinguishable and geographically separate partial units:
The geothermal heating plant system is comprised by two hydraulic loops:
„We are committed to the utilisation of green energy and the use of geothermal resources for energy generation. Therefore, the PannErgy Group has set itself a strategic goal of constructing geothermal power plants across Hungary, using innovative and environmentally friendly technologies. Dénes Gyimóthy

The heat output of the thermal wells are transmitted to the heat consumers via pipelines and heat exchangers, while after cooling down the fluid is reinjected. One of the fundamental requirements of the operation of the system was that as depending on the momentary demands for heat output the system could be regulated by controlling water production by the pump of the thermal well and the water-carrying performance of the accelerating pumps. Towards this end, at a number of points measurements had to be performed to determine the temperature, pressure and volume flow rate values as means of managing the geothermal heating plant via the central remote surveillance system.
MIHŐ Kft. – a company owned by the municipal government of the city of Miskolc – and PannErgy establishes the project company Miskolci Geotermia Zrt. for supplying renewable thermal energy to a very significant part of one of Hungary’s largest cities.
After the first well is drilled by PannErgy Group, initial results prove to be extremely positive, exceeding expectations.
The geothermal heat transport system implemented within the framework of the Miskolc Geothermal Project is launched, marking the commencement of the supply of thermal energy to the County-Right City of Miskolc. With this, Central Europe’s largest geothermal heating operation is put into service.

The 7000 m2 plastic tunnel installed by Miskolc Városgazda Nonprofit Kft. is connected to the geothermal system, integrating the utilisation of geothermal energy into agricultural production.
Delivery of the Heat Centre in Tatár street, constructed in Phase Two of the Miskolc Geothermal Project.
Phase two goes live. A transmission pipeline suitable for delivering heat energy from geothermal sources to downtown consumers is completed up to the Heating Plant in Tatár street, where a new heat transfer station was constructed.
In addition to supplying geothermal energy to the District Heating system of the city of Miskolc under a 5 year contract, the company also provides renewable thermal energy for Joyson Safety System Hungary Kft., one of the largest industrial consumers in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, meeting its entire heat energy requirements from geothermal sources.
Commencing the supplying of geothermal heat, under a contract with the Japanese-owned GS Yuasa Magyarország Kft. PannErgy Group undertakes to construct the required transmission pipeline, up to the separation heat exchanger which is to be installed in the factory’s heat centre.
With the investment, Berekfürdő Energy Ltd uses the methane accompanying gas originating from the thermal wells of Berekfürdő for the generation of electric power and heat, and then sells the produced energy.Previous project
The system of Győr, commenced today, with full capacity is able to decrease the emission and so the quantity of the greenhouse gases – primarily carbon-dioxide, nitrogen-oxides – by approximately 67 000 tonnes on a yearly basis.Next project
