Szentlőrinc

The Szentlőrinc Geothermal System consists of a production well and a reinjection well, pipelines connecting the wells with the heat centre, as well as the engineering, power and control engineering facilities in the latter.

About project Szentőrinc

The Szentlőrinc Geothermal System consists of a production well and a reinjection well, pipelines connecting the wells with the heat centre, as well as the engineering, power and control engineering facilities in the latter. The system transfers heat from its heating plant to the distribution heating network through 3 heat exchanger units, each with a capacity of 4.6 MW.

It is the shared interest of both Hungary and the European Union to make this the world’s most competitive region, with innovative, sustainable and smart solutions driving economic growth.Dénes Gyimóthy

Highlights of project Szentlőrinc

November 2008.

PannErgy Geothermal Power Plants Zrt. and the Municipal Government of the Town of Szentlőrinc jointly establish the Szentlőrinci Geotermia Zrt. project company.

Spring of 2009.

Drilling is successful: the temperature of the water produced from the 1800 metre deep well is approximately 87 °C, with a maximum production rate of 25 l/s.

June 2010.

Szentlőrinci Geotermia Zrt. concludes a thermal energy supply contract with the Municipal Government of the town of Szentlőrinc for a period of 15 years, with the possibility a 5-year extension.

As of January 2011.

the project provides heating for approx. 900 homes using geothermal energy without any environmental pollution whatsoever, fully replacing the town’s previous natural gas-based district heating system.

Bored in 2009, the 1820-metre deep production well produces up to 25 l/s of thermal water with a temperature of about 87 °C. The thermal water is then transported approx. 800 metres to the Heating Plant through an insulated DN 200 pipeline. Once cooled, the water is returned to the 1655 metre deep reinjection well through an approx. 2.5 km long reinjection pipeline, ending up in the same hydrological layer from which it originated, thereby ensuring the long term sustainability of the system.

The use of renewable energy results in a 26 ton reduction in annual greenhouse gas emissions, primarily carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides.

Győr

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.

Previous project

Berekfürdő

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.
