OPERA- Operational Issues of Geothermal Installations

Scaling and material corrosion, for instance, are issues in many geothermal areas in Europe. All these issues lead to breakdown times due to necessary repair or service works. Also, other issues like high gas content of the thermal brine or reinjection issues have to be discussed.

The OpERA working group brings together the national experts (Plant owners, project developers, researchers) to provide an overview of potential solutions, like adapted materials in the geothermal installation, inhibitors or optimized pipe geometries or well design. Therefore OpERA provides a platform for technical knowledge exchange to solve Operational issues on a European base.
