Developed in China
Geysir Green Energy is developing
the Xianyang Geothermal District Heating
project in Shaanxi Province, China. The
system has replaced coal-burning facilities
and been installed in new developments
that would otherwise have used coal. The
project’s first phase was completed in 2006
and is expected to become the largest geothermal district heating system in the world
when it expands to serve 15 million sq m
(161.5 million sq ft) by 2015.
Today, Shaanxi Green Energy operates five heat centrals and nine geothermal wells with an installed peak-load
capacity of 100 MWth and a baseload
of 63 MWth. The Xianyang operation
offsets 33,000 tons of fossil fuel carbon
emissions every year, equivalent to the
emissions from 11,000 cars or planting
330,000 trees every year.
Geysir China operations are focused
on investing and expanding geothermal
developments in the country through
Shaanxi Green Energy Geothermal
Development Co. Ltd., a joint venture
between Enex-China and Sinopec, which is
engaged in the development and operation
of geothermal resources for district heating
systems in Shaanxi and Hebei provinces.
The Xianyang geothermal system is Shaanxi
Green’s first project in Shaanxi Province.
