Clichy-sous-Bois (France) operation

Abstract

The geothermal plant of Clichy-sous-Bois has been operating for 2 years and covers the needs of 3,400 equivalent-dwellings, including a sport-hall, 2 schools, the town-hall and 7 low-cost groups of flats. Geothermal energy covers 65% of the energy yearly global consumption for heating and sanitary hot water, i.e. 35,151 MWh. Thus, 3,195 TOE are saved each year. In December, 1979, the town of Clichy-sous-bois delegated their sponsorship to the Societe d'equipement et d'amenagement du territoire du departement de la Seine-Saint-Denis - SODETAT 93 for the realization of the geothermal operation. The production and injection wells were drilled between July and September, 1981. The Dogger aquifer was encountered at 1,800 m deep, with a temperature of 70,8/sup 0/C and an exploitation yield of 200m/sup 3//h. Surface works started in March 1982 and were completed in November of the same year. Apart from the geothermal power plant, the network comprises 11 exchange substations and a distribution network of 2,700 m long with 7,000 m of underground pipes. This plant is exploited by the Compagnie francaise d'exploitation thermique (COFRETH) within the framework of a farmout contract for 20 years, including: production, transportation and public distribution of geothermal heat all over the city of  More>>
