Consultant gec-co counts on Hartmann Valves & Wellheads for Well Completion

Geothermal energy is a perfect example for renewables. It is resource-saving, produces no pollution and the availability is almost unlimited. The city of Traunreut is an ideal location for geothermal energy since it is situated in the Bavarian Molasse Basin. With two wells drilled successful and the installation of the district heating transmission station, Traunreut feeds geothermal energy in the municipal network. 3000 housing units as well as industrial clients are supplied this way. The geothermal power plant will presumably produce climate-neutral electricity by 2016.
