Project Title: Jubilee Pool Geothermal Well Drilling
Location: Cornwall, United Kingdom
Client: Geothermal Engineering Ltd (GEL)
Business Sectors: Geothermal, Drilling
Services (Technical Disciplines): Dual rotary surface casing installation and down the hole hammer drilling with high pressure compressed air.
Project Objectives/ Outcomes: Meehan Drilling Ltd. was awarded the project to drill and complete a geothermal well. The Jubilee pool is one the of last surviving art deco lidos in the UK and is located on Penzance seafront, Cornwall.
Our Role: Meehan drilled a 410m-deep geothermal well which will provide enough renewable energy to heat a section of the pool to 35°c. This will mean, for the first time, that the pool will have heated water, transforming it into an all-year-round attraction, which will bring enormous benefits both for the pool and the economy of Penzance, Cornwall.
