GEOTHERMIA, the park with zero CO2 emission of the Heart of Hainaut :
Backed by 30 years of experience in geothermal urban heating networks, IDEA decided, in 2010, to equip one of its newest business parks in Mons, GEOTHERMIA, with the same type of system, thus creating a park which is unique in Belgium. IDEA is making there zero CO2 emissions heating available to businesses, and is offering hot water at attractive prices to businesses who need it for their production processes (drying and brewing processes, pharmaceuticals, greenhouses, fish farms etc).
GEOTHERMIA is also at the heart of a dynamic, diversified economic area, just a stone’s throw away from the INITIALIS Science Park, the largest shopping centre in Wallonia and public infrastructures designed by famous architects, such as Santiago CALATRAVA’s multi-modal station walkway and Daniel LIBESKIND’s conference centre. GEOTHERMIA stands at the gateway to the City of Mons, European Capital of Culture 2015, home to several universities and many research centres, which has been listed three times on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
IDEA sets at investors’ disposal land for sale and relay-buildings for rent in line with the latest planning and environmental regulations. Plots of land from 0.25 to 3 hectares are immediately available for developers and end-users.
