Geo-Coat workshop on Materials Challenges in Geothermal Energy Production

22nd March 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Can coatings help mitigate the material challenges in geothermal energy production? As part of the project Geo-Coat (funded by European Union’s Horizon, Grant agreement 764086), novel corrosion- and erosion- resistant coatings based on selected High Entropy Alloys (HEAs) and Ceramic/Metal mixtures (Cermets) have been developed, showing remarkable resistance to threats of geothermal operations. These coatings can be applied through standard coating techniques (primarily High Velocity Oxygen-Fuel and Laser cladding) and have been designed to provide the required bond strength, hardness and density for challenging geothermal applications.

As the Geo-Coat project enters its final phase, the consortium is pleased to invite to all geothermal enthusiasts to join a workshop: Geo-Coat: Materials Challenges in Geothermal Energy Production.

This event will present an overview of the Geo-Coat methodology to address the material challenges, exciting results from in-situ durability testing of the coatings in real geothermal environments, demonstration of flow assurance simulation models, demonstration of economic impact of Geo-Coat through Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) results and benefits of using coatings as lessons learned by end user.
