Olaf Scholz visits DrillTec drilling location in Potsdam

On May 8, 2023, Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz was guest at the geothermal project on “Heinrich-Mann-Allee/Kolonie Daheim” in Potsdam. An inner-city, attractive residential location with commercial and service areas, which is mainly heated by geothermal energy, is planned to be created there.

On behalf of “Stadtwerke Potsdam GmbH”, DrillTec GUT GmbH Großbohr- und Umwelttechnik has been drilling two boreholes with the drilling rig “Compact” here since the end of 2022 with a depth of up to 2,000 meters. Especially in the area of geothermal drilling in a limited space, DrillTec has a great expertise, on the basis of its experiences during the past years, which can be expoited in this project.

Olaf Scholz was able to see the progress of the forward-looking urban development project on site and received detailed information on the drilling process as part of a short tour (together with the mayor of the city of Potsdam and the management of „Energie und Wasser Potsdam GmbH”) around the drilling rig.
