Warmtebedrijf Westland has been taken over by geothermal and heat network operator Yeager Energy. Because of this, the company receives a new financial and technical impulse to realize its ambitions in the Dutch Westland.
For a long time, Warmtebedrijf Westland Developments has been committing itself to supply sustainable heat and CO2, irrigation water, and optical fiber cables in the Westland. The takeover by Yeager Energy supplies the company with the financial resources and technical knowledge to realize its ambitions further. The trade name Warmtebedrijf Westland will remain being used.
First heat supplied to De Lier
Warmtebedrijf Westland takes part in the geothermal heating project ‘Aardwarmte Delfland’ in the Dutch town of De Lier, together with partners Shell Geothermal and A. de Bruijn and Sons and Harting Holland. The goal is to realize a geothermal heating system and a heating network. A cooperation agreement between the parties has been signed for the project, and recently, an SDE+ grant has been acquired. The first heat is expected to be supplied by the end of 2023.
Besides that, Warmtebedrijf Westland sees opportunities to realize the construction of a heating network and supply CO2, irrigation water, and optic fiber cables. The initial investigative and exploratory talks between a variety of parties are already taking place for this project.
Yeager Energy attracted investment from energy investment fund Kerogen Capital last month. Yeager has requested a variety of geothermal heating exploration permits (on Voorne-Putten, next to the coast between the Hague and Katwijk and in Purmerend) and is in conversations to step in on several existing permits. Yeager’s company plan has as its goal to develop and operate the entire geothermal heating chain – from source to consumer.
