This includes the heating network and the heat transfer station near the wellheads.

The initial drilling of the production well started in January 2023, but two sidetrack wells had to be drilled before commercially exploitable temperatures and flowrates were attained.

The measured drilling depth was 4750 meters at a total depth of 3050 meters.  Temperature of over 107 °C and a flow rate of over 100 liters/second was initially measured from the well.
