Groningen geothermal project aimed at carbon neutral goal

Groningen is the site of an ambitious geothermal district heating project, part of an overarching initiative to make the Dutch city energy neutral by 2035.

IF Technology and Denmark-based Ross Offshore DK are partnering on servicing the project.
Both firms aim to combine their expertise for the work on this project together with the experts of WarmteStad (Thermal City). Specifically, the partners aim to work on drilling, well management and engineering. The expectation is that the geothermal project is realized between late 2017 and early 2018.

Thinkgeoenergy website reports that the district heating system in Groningen is being developed concurrently with the geothermal system.

Lars Andersen, Ross DK A/S says “WarmteStad Groningen is making a change – going from a natural gas based heating system to a district heating based system based on green geothermal energy as source. Together with WarmteStad and our project partner IF Technology BV we will develop a sustainable supply of green energy for decades to come”.

“We envision geothermal energy to providence us with energy for years to come.” Dick Janssen, Managing Director of Thermal City Groningen.
