Operations will start the end of May 2018 in Schwerin-Lankow.

The drilling is projected to go into a depth of 1,250 metres. The project will be supported by the German state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in line with the climate protection subsidy directive and the climate protection loan scheme. Stadtwerke Schwerin views geothermal energy as an important part of the sustainable and climate-friendly energy production needed to make Schwerin, the state capital of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, CO2-neutral by 2050. Around 15% of Schwerin's district heating will be provided from geothermal energy in the future.
