The first phase of a geothermal district heating development project of up to 40 MWth began this month with drilling of the first well in the town of Miskolc in eastern Hungary. The well depth is planned to be 2.3 km and all geophysical and geological research, well design and drilling supervision will be carried out by Mannvit. Miskolc is one of the three largest cities in the country with approximately 200,000 residents.
Work on the first district heating project in Hungary, in the town Szentlörinc, continues with a planned reinjection well to be drilled at the end of May, 2010. The first well in this town was successfully drilled last fall. The reinjection well is planned to be approximately 1.8 km deep and all geophysical and geological research, well design and drilling supervision will be carried out by Mannvit. Commissioning of the district heating system is planned for late fall, 2010.
