Utilisation of geothermal heat in the district heating system of Kiskunhalas town
Summary of project results
The objective of the project was to explore the possibilities on how to utilize one of the natural resources of Hungary, namely the environmentally friendly, renewable and affordable geothermal energy in the existing, currently on fossil fuel based district heating system of Kiskunhalas, which is of high interest of both the city and its residents. During the implementation of the project, Kiskunhalas Geothermal Project Limited Liability Company completed a geological exploratory drilling to test whether the district heating systems of the town could be transformed to geothermal energy source based system, instead of the currently used natural gas. The well extends to 2.500 meter depth at the moment, which means it reached the concession limit but unfortunately no geothermal fluid was found.
The involved bilateral partner shared its experiences with regards to the geothermal developments, supported the project management, these activities improved the knowledge of the participants. Bilateral fund did not involve and contribute to strengthening bilateral relations at this project.
