SWM Will Take Over Technical Operational Management Of Geothermal Power Plant In Bruck

Silenos Energy is currently building the Bruck geothermal power plant in Garching an der Alz, Germany. With the 125 degree hot thermal water obtained from 3,840 meters of depth, around 36 million kilowatt hours of green electricity and up to 15 million kilowatt hours per year of renewable heat are to be produced for a district heating network from summer 2020 (this corresponds to the needs of up to 14,000 households).

Silenos Energy will turn over technical management of the plant to the Munich municipal utility. 

Stadtwerke München (SWM) is one of the largest energy and infrastructure companies in Germany as a municipal energy expert in the state capital of Munich. They provide the city with electricity, natural gas, district heating, district cooling and fresh drinking water in a safe and climate-friendly manner and they operate the 18 indoor and summer pools. 

Oliver Friedlaender, technical director of Silenos Energy, said, “The decisive factor for us is SWM's many years of extensive expertise in the use of geothermal energy. The existing know-how of SWM, which guarantees safe, legally compliant operation as well as maintenance and repair, convinced us to have found a very good partner for the future. "

Helge-Uve Braun, technical director of SWM, commented," SWM has been operating five of its own geothermal plants for more than 16 years and have already successfully taken on operational management tasks for third-party plants. We will bring our experience from construction and operation into the Bruck geothermal plant as a strong partner. We thank you for the trust that Silenos Energy has placed in us and are convinced that we can meet or even exceed the expectations placed in us. ”

In Garching an der Alz, SWM will ensure the fully automated, technical operation of the geothermal plant. This includes permanent monitoring, regular system checks, the organization of maintenance work, troubleshooting and repair work. Thanks to the cooperation between Silenos Energy and Stadtwerke München, the partners not only exchange valuable experience and knowledge, but also work together for safe and reliable renewable energy supply in Garching an der Alz and in Munich.

Silenos Energy is a joint venture between RAG Austria AG, Austria's most traditional exploration and production company, and STRABAG, the European technology company for construction services. In its core business, Silenos Energy combines the expertise of companies in power plant and plant engineering (STRABAG) and in deep drilling technology (RAG) for the development, construction and operation of geothermal plants.
