Germany: Good News for Plants in Traunreut and Landau
Two projects developing geothermal power plants in Germany made strides in their progress this week.

In a new arrangement, Italian Turboden will supply German geothermal project developer Geothermische Kraftwerksgesellschaft Traunreut mbH (GKT) with organic-rankine-cycle (ORC) technology for the 4.1-MW geothermal power plant in Traunreut, in Bavaria. Future electricity production at the plant is expected in mid-2015. Renewables.seenews.com

Another German firm, Daldrup & Soehne (ETR:4DS), which provides drilling and environmental engineering, has acquired 40% of the geothermal power plant in Landau from EnergieSuedWest. The plant has been operating at a loss and needs a third well, which EnergieSuedwest could not provide. The new owners plan to begin drilling by the end of the year. Renewables.seenews.com
