Porció Ltd. is basically a consulting and engineering firm acting in the field of the utilization of thermal waters and geothermal resources. We prepare feasibility studies, plans for implementation, water and environmental licensing documents or any other type of materials applying for various permissions form authorities and, if needed, applications for loans and non-refundable financial sources. Our company is fully qualified to ensure both projects management and technical supervision of geothermal investments.
Porció Ltd. is a company implementing, as a turnkey contractor, deep and shallow geothermal heating systems and offering related services, which more often require special experience and knowledge since geothermal resources usually have very different nature, such as project development, management and consultancy. Our subcontractors whom we have been working with for long are highly qualified and tried partners.
Porció Ltd. is a company acting as a professional investor in the utilization of geothermal energy sources. We contributed, at our own risk, to the implementation of geothermal heating systems in Szeged and Szarvas. Our company can hence provide energy by long term contracts to its consumers at a lower price than that of the fossil fuel used earlier. The company intends to execute other similar systems in the future.
Staff of Porció Ltd. contributed, as founding members, to establishment of the Hungarian Geothermal Association (HGA), the first and the most significant civil organization in geothermal sector in Hungary. József Paizs acted as the Financial Manager of the Association for long and Gábor Szita has been its President since he was elected first in 2003. Mr. Szita is a current member of the Board of Directors of the International Geothermal Association (IGA) and Porció Ltd. has been the member of the European Geothermal Association (EGEC) since 2000.
Porció Ltd for Technical Development and Ventures was founded in 1991 by 4 mechanical engineers, i.e. Mr. Lajos Csontos, Mr. Zsolt Mihály, Mr. József Paizs and Mr. Gábor Szita. They got to know each other still in the second half of the 80’s at Geothermal Co-operative, while they had been working together in an ambitious geothermal energy program, and set up thermal based building heated systems in the town of Szentes, Hódmezővásárhely, Csongrád, Makó, Szarvas, Kapuvár, Mosonmagyaróvár and Nagyatád. Most of these projects are still operating, typically in a renovated and expanded form.
Like a number of other companies, Geotherm Co-operative was swept away by the political and economic changes.
At the beginning of the 1990’s, since there was no need for consultancy nor for engineering, the newly-formed Porció Ltd. started to work as a professional investor in the geothermal sector. The first equipment we put into operation was in Szeged at the Szent-Györgyi Albert Medical University. In 1993 a similar agreement was concluded with the Municipality of Szarvas.
Our workload was gradually increasing when, in 2009, Mr. Lajos Csontos died tragically. We took on new staff formed by entrants from universities, who have so far demonstrated their aptitude and persistence when successfully implementing some new geothermal projects. Unfortunately, Mr. József Paizs passed away in 2015, thus Mr. Gábor Szita become the only shareholder of the company. In spite of that, he is not the sole depositary of the continuity neither of the Porció Ltd. nor the Hungarian geothermal utilization.
