Project Description

Aardwarmte Den Haag used Well Engineering Partners’ geothermal well design and drilling supervision services for its geothermal doublet wells in the city of The Hague, the Netherlands. The two deviated wells, with a depth of 2700 and 2300 meters AH are used for generating safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly energy for heating 4000 houses and apartments . It is the most extensive geothermal heat project done so far in The Netherlands.

Well Engineering Partners, in cooperation with IF Technology  (IF-WEP), was hired by Aardwarmte Den Haag to perform the well design of the geothermal doublet, supervise the drilling of both wells and help with the start-up of the production after drilling completion.
