The objective is to improve geothermal plant performance in order to increase energy output and provide economic feasibility to current and future geothermal projects. Existing geothermal plants still face a large variety of operational problems caused by flow obstructions and inefficient injection strategies. The project plan is to develop a collective knowledge base by aggregating data and experiences from a range of geothermal doublets at multi-national level. Demonstration of cost-efficient, next-generation technologies and methods (cation-, particle filters, CO2-injection, thermal stimulation) will enable the reduction of obstructive elements and resistance to fluid injection. Predictive modelling of physical and chemical processes will permit long-term doublet performance projection. Optimization strategies will be undertaken at demonstration sites to ensure maximum energy output.
