On April 27th, the Trias Westland geothermal drillings arrived at the final depth of 2500 meters! The production test will tell how much water and heat the system will be able to produce. Based on the outcome, the number of horitculture companies which can be provided with sustainable heat will be determined.
This week the drill rig will be removed and transported to its next destination. After the production test, the construction of the geothermal plant will start.
