Eden Geothermal hot rocks project hits target with successful drilling of first well



The pioneering Eden geothermal project has successfully completed its first well to nearly 5 km into the Earths‘s crust. The well has a vertical depth of 4,871 m. Its measured depth – the actual length of the well – is 5,277 m, making it the longest onshore well in the UK.


Once complete, the two well project has the potential to supply renewable heat to the Eden biomes and neighbouring industries equivalent to the heat used by more than 35,000 homes, or renewable electricity to that consumed by around 14,000 homes.
