Thermal Utilization of Groundwater in the Reuss River Valley
Thermal Utilization of Groundwater in the Reuss River Valley in Switzerland.
Description of project:
Some 200 000 people rely on the groundwater in the Swiss Reuss River valley for their drinking water supply. Additionally, the desire to utilize this renewable energy resource for heating and cooling purpose, is becoming increasingly important. The careful planning required by these simultaneous uses of the groundwater call for ever more powerful and refined models and methods. By developing and maintaining a state-of-the-art regional flow model, ÅF provides the tools and expertise to simulate the consequences of these interventions into the complex water balance for both authorities and clients.
- Model development, calibration and maintenance
- 3D modelling of flow and heat transport
- Design and licensing applications
- Application to a wide range of civil engineering projects
