Engie awarded $45m geothermal contract

Bordeaux city authorities have awarded Engie a 30 year contract to develop the city’s geothermal district heating network. Bordeaux

Bordeaux Metropole Council awarded the $45m project to enable the French firm to meet 82% of the region’s heating needs, with the rest being supplied by natural gas.

It will serve around 28,000 homes, help reduce 19,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year and create 38 direct and indirect jobs.

Drilling of two geothermal boreholes, comprising a production and reinjection well, is expected to start in early 2019 and last for four months.
