Geothermal plant in Tura, Hungary

KS Orka arranged for Mannvit to design and construct a geothermal plant in Tura, which is an agricultural town 40 km from Budapest. The project is the first of its kind in Hungary and will produce 3 MW of electricity as well as hot water to heat greenhouses for tomato growing. Project management, along with design, procurement and construction management, is in the hands of Mannvit’s Hungary office.

“The project is a valuable investment for the local community. It will increase the tax income, create new workplaces and facilitate further geothermal energy incentive investments in the town. In co-operation with Mannvit, the investor, KS Orka, has already started the preparation of the second phase of the project, by drilling new production and reinjection wells and building up a plant with more than 10 MW electrical capacity.”
