Özet

In this study, we assess the Bigadic Geothermal District Heating System ( GDHS), which has the world's third longest and Turkey's longest geothermal pipeline, for its energetic, exergetic, economic and environmental factors. The thermal energy capacity of the Bigadic geothermal field is rated as 31.83 MW for a discharge temperature of 45 C. As of the end of 2006, there were two wells actively running ( 429 m and 307 m in depth). The well head temperature is 98 C with a yield of over 100 kg/ s.
