Climeon wins geothermal order in Germany

Climeon has received its first major order for a geothermal power plant in Germany, and its first order that will operate on an original oil and gas infrastructure, from the Bavarian energy provider Geoenergie Kirchweidach (GEK). On November 29 2017, Climeon entered a LOI with GEK, which has decided to proceed and placed the order value of over EUR 5m. The order marks an important step in replacing fossil fuels with a sustainable geothermal baseload.

The deal will enable GEK to utilize the excess heat of the geothermal plant that delivers heat to the local greenhouse business and the city of Kirchweidach. The geothermal resource was originally identified through the explorational drilling for oil and gas in the area.

The modular Climeon Heat Power system will work in conjunction with the heating and it is estimated that the first phase will annually deliver 14,000 MWh of electricity to the grid. The order is for 16 modules, with an option for GEK to order additional modules in a second phase to expand the production to more than 20,000 MWh annually.
