Varend Corso participation

More geothermal heath for Westland, Netherlands

Last year, the joint members of Coöperatie Aardwarmtebeheer Nederland and Coöperatie InfraCo in the Westland region again supplied more heat to greenhouse horticulture, saving even more natural gas. In 2022, 816,000 MWH of geothermal heat was supplied, which amounts to savings of almost 93,000,000 m3 or the annual consumption of over 79,000 households. The contribution to reducing CO2 emissions from all connected greenhouse growers thus amounts to 167,400,000 kg CO2 in one year.

Last year's entry

Further geothermal energy projects are currently being developed in Westland, as well as in the coming years, making it possible to achieve additional savings of another 95,000,000 m3 of natural gas from 2025/2026. This will enable a big step towards climate-neutral greenhouse horticulture in 2040.

Floating parade
This year, the joint Westlandse Aardwarmteprojecten will once again participate in the Varend Corso. After winning first prize for best commercial entry last year, the projects intend to sail a beautifully decorated boat again this year to introduce everyone to the sector's sustainability ambitions. It is worth mentioning that both existing and yet-to-be-developed projects are participating. The participating parties are the existing projects Geothermal Heat Vogelaer 1, Trias Westland, Geopower Oudcamp, Geothermie De Lier, Natures Heat, and the yet-to-be-developed projects of Vogelaer 2, Warmtecoöperatie Maasdijk, Warmtecoöperatie Polanen, and Aardwarmte Delfland.
