The hottest successful geothermal well of Southern Germany (LinkedIn)

Holzkirchen, one of the most southern geothermal projects in the Bavarian Molasse Basin is successful. During the production test of the last days with a continuous pumping rate of 50 liter per second a temperature of 150°C was reached. These first results reflect the highest temperature of a successful low enthalpy geothermal project in southern Germany.
Further projects in the south of Bavaria, more or less in the same latitude as Holzkirchen are on their way. In Weilheim, a project in cooperation with Enel, the first well is in the drilling phase. The Geretsried project, with the hottest temperature of 160°C so far, starts drilling the side track in the next weeks, as in the first attempt no water was found.
