Geothermal well Chochołów GT-1, Poland
Realization of the directional borehole with trajectory "S" and the depth of 4 122 m by using IRI 1200 drilling rig. The main objective of the project is to extract thermal waters with a temperature over 90 degrees Celsius and a pumping capacity of over 250 m3/h. The well will be located several hundred metres from the thermal swimming pool complex Chochołowskie Termy. Currently, the thermal water that supplies the pools comes from a geothermal borehole drilled in 1989-1990 Chochołów PIG-1. Ultimately, the newly drilled Chochołów GT-1 well will be used as a production well, while the one currently in use will be used to inject cooled water into the deposit.
The project is co-financed by the Polish Geothermal Plus programme of the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management and by the EEA Financial Mechanism 2014-2021 from the programme: "Environment, Energy and Climate Change".
