The pressure in the oil reservoirs, deep below the surface, is more than 1.000 atm. The pressure in an average garden hose is two atm.
Geo performed geotechnical borings to 20 m and 30 m below ground level at the Munkholm Bridge’s eastern abutment.
ATES stores energy in the underground for cooling and heating of buildings. A small system can easily produce an amount of energy equal to the annual energy consumption of 300 low-energy houses.
In the more than 500 geotechnical drillings, carried out in the site-investigations for the Copenhagen Cityring, more than 14 kilometres of risers and well screens with diameters between 63 and 225 mm were installed.
Over the following four years, Geo will collaborate with GEUS, Orbicon, Frisesdahl and the Capital Region of Denmark to further develop and test a brand new freezing method for remediating chlorinated solvents in clay and clayey till.
