DEME headquarters ATES project
In the expansion of the headquarters of DEME NV in Zwijndrecht was chosen to place a sustainable ATES system. Well tests and thermal simulations were executed by AGT. The well tests were carried out in an aquifer which is in direct contact with the Scheldt and, therefore, is influenced by the tides.
The system will comprise of 2 well doublets with a planned flowrate of 130 m³/day. Subsidiary IFTech SA is responsible for the design, supply and installation of the piping, heat pumps, heat exchangers and the operating system that provides communication with the building.
