Go Geothermal Predicts Rise In PE100-RC Pipework Installations
PE100-RC has the same properties as PE100 in terms of temperature resistance and the requirement for welded connections but crucially it offers better mechanical properties with increased resistance to both stress cracking and point loads.
Orkney installs geothermal heat pumps for public buildings
It is believed to be the biggest geothermal project of its kind in Scotland. Geothermal heat pumps are being used at the new Kirkwall Grammar School, Stromness Primary school, Papdale Halls, and the new developments at the Pickaquoy Centre.

Ministers plot to limit heat pump subsidies over cost fears.
Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., is on the cusp of turning on what it says will be the largest ground source heat pump in the US, if not the world. The geothermal heat pump will cut the University’s carbon footprint roughly in half, the school says. It will also eradicate almost all of its $3 million annual fuel bill, but will cost about $1 million a year in electricity to run. Heothermal heat pumps – work by running water through pipes below the frost line, which is about six feet underground in Ball State’s locale. This water sits at the soil’s constant 55 degree temperature, meaning that it can be used for heating in winter and cooling during summertime.
DESPITE a few concerns from district council, a West Vancouver home on Seaside Place won the right to install an underwater geothermal heat pump system. It's difficult to drill in a lot of the areas of West Vancouver due to rock because of that best medium of heat-transfer is water.
Feige’s co-chairman, Rep. Paul Seaton, R-Homer, said similar geothermal projects were already being done in his district, and they might be used in more places than initially thought.In the geothermal heat pump system that became operational last May, the airport replaced $130,000 worth of diesel heat with $15,000 worth of geothermal heat , said Catherine Fritz, airport architect.
Geothermal potentials in Moose Jaw
At least two generations the geothermal heating would prove a cost-effective, environmentally-friendly and local source of energy. While the system would require about 366 kilowatts of electricity to pump the water, the heat energy produced is about 29.25 million kilojoules per hour.
MENA Geothermal awarded contract to repair and complete installation of geothermal heat pump system in Jordan.
MENA Geothermal was established in 2008 by its current President, Khaled Al Sabawi, to offer energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost effective heating and cooling systems to customers in the Middle East and North Africa region. During the same year, MENA Geothermal was awarded the Energy Globe Award, the world's most prominent and prestigious environmental prize, for its geothermal heating and cooling system at the UCI Headquarters Building in Ramallah, Palestine.

Hiring Geothermal Heat Pump Drilling Contractors

HVAC contractors, mechanical engineers, architects, developers, and others involved in geothermal heat pump installations should evaluate the qualifications of drilling contractors to protect groundwater and optimize heat pump system operation.

As much as 50% of the total geothermal heat pump market involves the use of vertical borehole subsystems. There are several different configurations of geothermal heat pump system installations involving vertical earth drilling:

* Open loop: single well for water withdrawal, water returned to a surface source
* Open loop: single well for water withdrawal, water returned to a second well
* Standing column: single well for water withdrawal and water return
* Closed loop: vertical borehole
* Direct exchange: vertical boreholes using concentric pipe systems.

A motivation for NGWA promoting these questions and the need to HVAC contractors, mechanical engineers, etc., is to direct them to NGWA-member or NGWA-certified contractors to do the drilling for geothermal heat pump installations. To find drilling contractors, including those who work on geothermal heat pump installations, use
