Water Protection Area Donautal, Ehingen – Report on competing land use and contaminated sites

The report summarizes the available information on the competing land use and the contaminated sites in the surrounding areas of the water protection area Ehingen. From the information on the classification of the hazards on subjects of protection in the land register on land use and contaminated sites the hazard for the drinking water extraction at the horizontal filter well Donautal is determined and evaluated.

New Directive on State-founded Support of Ground-coupled Heat Pumps

From April 1st, 2015 new guidelines for the state-founded support of ground-coupled heat pumps come into effect. The compilation provided by the german heat pump association (Bundesverband Wärmepumpe, bwp) giving an overview, can be found here. The manifold objects of funding and bonuses can be confusing at first sight. To support you in getting the most out of the new directive, we offer you our qualified and professional guidance. We are looking forward to your inquiries!

Landfill Site Ruppenmanklitz – Detailed Investigation

Technical project support and construction supervision during percussion drillings and the installation of 3 temporary groundwater monitoring wells in cooperation with GEO4 (see picture). During the exploratory work soil, soil air, and strata water samples were taken by the GEO4 Team and subsequently analysed in the lab. Next steps: key date measurements, potentially groundwater sampling, evaluation of the results and risk evaluation regarding the soil-groundwater and soil-soil air-human dynamic pathways.

Training according to DVGW 120-2:

Automatic sealing control of geothermal drilling using the CEM-Trakker on 27th Jan. 2017

The most discussed topic in the geothermal energy industry is the “automatic sealing control”. The training deals with the topic and provides background knowledge regarding drilling, grouting, building materials and underground in the context of automatic sealing control. Moreover, the use of the CEM-Trakker is shown and trained with real data and real hardware, so that the use of the system is understood and applied correctly. Further information and the registration (expired) can be found here (german)
