2018 - 2021
Increasing the life time and sustainability of geothermal power plants.
The aim of the project is to develop new coatings for geothermal systems to increase their life time and performance. Several coating methods will be used to increase the performance of metals such as black steel. By the end of the project, the team will have coated components for a 10 megawatt turbine which will be tested for a four year duration. The project will focus on coating the weakest components in these systems.
Role in project
Failure modes and effects analysis for geothermal power plants around the world.
Development of various coatings for high entropy alloys, cermets and metal matrix composites, all of them optimized for specific conditions found in geothermal environments.
Design of a geothermal flow assurance simulator and decision support system for cost reduction in geothermal power plants.
