New connections in Zakopane and in the municipalities of Poronin, Bialy Dunajec and Szaflary were created thanks to EU funds. The total value of the project was over PLN 9 million (ca EUR 2 million), half of which comes from the EU funds. In addition to the new connections, also a new pumping station was added.
“In the near future we will connect another 150 recipients in this area. Currently, Geotermia Podhalanska has major development plans towards Nowy Targ, which is why the deepest geothermal borehole in Poland with a depth of 7,000 m in Szaflary is being created (we reported). Our company pursues development policy in two directions. On the one hand we connect recipients, but we are also investing in increasing production capacity and making new wells to secure the source heat, “explained Ignacok.
