In France geothermal energy systems replace oil infrastructure to reduce emissions in aquaculture

January 20, 2021

France offers some great examples of converting oil infrastructure into cleaner geothermal systems.

In Le Teich, Nouvelle Aquitaine, a former oil borehole has been reconverted in the 1980s into a geothermal hot water producer (73°C). Today it supplies 3,000 m2 of hot water for ponds in a fish farm. The use of geothermal energy avoids the emission of the equivalent of 5,000 equivalent tonnes of CO2 to produce a local caviar. Bon appétit!
