Daldrup & Söhne AG receives further order for geothermal drilling from Stadtwerke Schwerin

- Schwerin: CO2-neutral energy supply even for heat

- Daldrup is a specialist for the development of geothermal aquifers also in Northern Germany

Oberhaching / Ascheberg, October 5, 2020 - The drilling technology and geothermal energy specialist Daldrup & Söhne AG (ISIN DE0007830572) has been awarded a contract by Energieversorgung Schwerin GmbH & Co. Erzeugung KG (EVSE), a subsidiary of the Stadtwerke Schwerin GmbH (SWS), to drill an injection well. The project is part of the state capital's climate initiative. Approx. 15 % of Schwerin's district heating requirements will be covered in future by the integration of geothermal energy. The order value for Daldrup & Söhne AG is around EUR 4 million. The work in Schwerin-Lankow will start in mid-October 2020.

The well is to be drilled to a depth of around 1,300 meters and completed within a good four months. After the results of the first well in 2018 exceeded expectations, Energieversorgung Schwerin is using geothermal energy to further expand its climate-friendly heat supply. To this end, the existing district heating network is also being supplied with geothermal, regional heat. Geothermal energy helps to avoid CO2 emissions from the outset, and considerable quantities of the pollutant sulfur dioxide as well as particulate matter and nitrogen oxides are not produced at all.

Clear goal: Schwerin wants to become CO2-neutral by 2035
For Stadtwerke Schwerin (municipal utility), the use of geothermal energy is a contribution to sustainable and climate-friendly energy generation on the way to the state capital's targeted CO2 neutrality by 2035. The project is funded by the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in accordance with the Climate Protection Funding Guidelines and the Climate Protection Loan Program.

Considerable geothermal potential in the North German Basin
Daldrup & Söhne AG sees in the North German basin substantial, promptly and relatively simply developable potential for the use of the deep geothermal energy by power supply companies as well as commercial and industrial large customers. Daldrup & Söhne AG takes part already in numerous advertisements and stands in active exchange with public utilities and investors. The North German basin is bordered by the coasts of the North Sea and Baltic Sea as well as through the low mountain range thresholds in the south and includes certain regions in the federal states of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Brandenburg, Berlin, Lower Saxony, Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein. The usable aquifer area available in the subsoil is approx. 135,000 km² and, depending on the region and development depth, has temperatures between 131 F and 329 F (55 to 165 Celsius), with a technical potential of 911 TWh/a. These are very good conditions for direct heat utilization. Daldrup & Söhne AG is specialized in developing this renewable energy source and making it available to the people in the regions.
