The drilling sites are finished. The drilling site in Gelting still looks empty. Starting next week, the material for drilling site 1 will be delivered. Then approx. 130 truck loads of equipment will arrive. The central element will be the drilling tower, which will rise 60 meters high.
Deliveries will take place from June 5 to around June 20. The second drilling tower will then be delivered from mid-July. During this time, there will be an increased volume of traffic with trucks.
Eavor apologizes to the residents for any inconvenience.
The foundation on Drill Site 2 with the four rig cellars has been completed
The four rig cellars at drill site 2 have been completed. There is still a lot to do before the drilling towers are delivered. The drilling sites have to be finished so that they meet the requirements for environmental protection.
Planning of the exhibition in the former stable building
The conversion work in the stable building has begun. On the upper floor, the former hay barn, we are planning an exhibition that will provide information about the project, the technology and the use of geothermal energy for the region. In addition, the changing room for the guided tours of the construction site will be built there.
The foundation slab for drilling site 1 is cast
After the drilling cellars for the four boreholes at drilling site 1 have been completed, the foundation slab is cast. It supports the drilling tower and catches surface water and liquids. This prevents liquids from leaking into the environment during drilling.

Construction of the drilling cellars at Drilling Site 1
The construction of drilling site 1 is progressing. The foundations for the 4 boreholes that will be started in the summer have been completed.
The earthworks for drilling site 2 have started
First, a level surface must be created to accommodate the drilling site for 4 boreholes. One borehole each from borehole site 1 and 2 will then be connected underground to form a loop.
