The drilling for the doublet well in Laufzorn started in autumn 2009. It was completed in spring 2010.
The production well, from which the hot water is brought up, reaches the water-bearing malm rock at a depth of 3,755 metres. The reinjection well returns the cooled water into the ground at a distance of around 2 kilometres and a depth of 3,428 metres.
In June 2010, the results of several weeks of testing were clear, they once again exceeded expectations: At the Laufzorn drilling site, the water bubbled up with a temperature of 127° Celsius at a rate of 140 litres / second. One of the most productive geothermal wells in Bavaria.
