Geothermal systems in the heart of the city

Jansen as Geothermal systems

The ‘Kern Süd’ in Uster clearly shows that the best way to meet urban living and working requirements is with a sustainable energy supply. The newly designed residential and commercial quarter includes three 5- to 7-storey residential units. In order to meet the extensive energy requirement of 872 MWh, the developers opted for the use of energy-efficient geothermal heat. The drilling work was carried out in restricted space in the heart of the city by Heim Bohrtechnik. The JANSEN vertex high-pressure PN30 geothermal probes were successfully installed at a depth of 400 m.
