This very innovative project, on the location of Purple Pride grower Greenbrothers, is one of a kind, because of the implemented shallow geothermal installation (up to 700 m deep) which is still capable of delivering high capacity heating.


DLVge covers all of the (permit) applications required by the Dutch government for the realisation of this very special project. This concerns among others a major subsidy application for sustainable energy, preliminary environmental research reports, several reports to the National Inspection of Mining Industry, exploitation permits, water discharge permit, and environmental permits for contstruction. Moreover, DLVge has also contributed to the preparation phase with a feasibility study and extended energy calculations. Visser & Smit Hanab is the contractor and developer of the drilling and the drilling installation.
