Foradex Vest

Founded in 2012, the subsidiary was operates 62 geothermal water wells:
  • 42 wells in Timis County
  • 14 wells in Arad County
  • 4 wells in Bihor County
  • 2 wells in Satu Mare County
Geothermal water is generally bicarbonate, sodic, iodic with small concentration and contains associated gases (85-92 % methane); total mineralization is 3,2-3,6 g/l, temperatures are between 55 and 82 °C and flows of 7-15 l/s.

The geothermal waters extracted from the functioning 15 bores are used for heating houses, apartments and greenhouses, for heating domestic water and for recreation and treatment in thermal water pools.

In 2012 approx. 300 000 m³ of geothermal water have been extracted and from an energetic point of view aprox. 900 tep. have been saved.

Projects:

1. The Feasibility Study for using geothermal waters in the Girisul de Cris perimeter

The Girisul de Cris is placed in the West Plain 20 km South West of Oradea municipality.

The project requires two wells: one for extraction (approx.60 l/s with 170 °C) and one for injection. Near the extraction well a geothermal power plant, a geothermal heating station and an associated gases collecting station will be built; near the injection well a geothermal water injection station will be constructed. To sum up, the project will include a geothermal Doublet (production well + injection well), power plant (net available power 2,5 MWel, net electric energy produced MWhel/year), heating station, approx. 29 ha greenhouses, geothermal water transport pipes (5.000 m), gases collecting station and thermally used geothermal water injection station.

The total investment reaches approx. 50 mil. Euro.

2. Business Plan TOMNATIC

The project includes the construction of 24,4 ha of greenhouses on the SC Foradex West grounds, whose heating will be mostly provided by the geothermal water and its associated gases from the 7 wells in the area owned by Foradex West.
