After years of preparation, drilling started yesterday for the United Downs Deep Geothermal Power Project in Cornwall, Great Britain.
GeoT is part of two H2020 research projects dealing with the United Downs project: S4CE (Science4CleanEnergy) and MEET (Multidisciplinary and multi-context demonstrationof EGS exploration and Exploitation Techniques and potentials).
This September and October, German project developer Deutsche ErdWärme (DEW) fullfilled its promise to decommission the old geothermal well in Bellheim (Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany) before starting a new geothermal project in this region. The P&A operations have now been completed.
Since 2015, GeoT has been the geological-technical consultant of DEW. This September / October, GeoT was supervising the P&A operations in Bellheim as representative of DEW.
Please find more information about the P&A operations in Bellheim on the DEW website:

The German Geothermal Association (BVG) and the Turkish Geothermal Power Plant Investors Association (JESDER) have signed a cooperation agreement to intensify the promotion of business opportunities and work on technological development in both countries. Last Friday, Dr. Horst Kreuter, CEO of GeoT and special representative of BVG, and Ali Kindap, President of JESDER signed the agreement as part of the state visit of German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Peter Altmeiner to Ankara, Turkey.
During his stay hin Turkey, Dr. Horst Kreuter also signed a cooperation agreement as CEO of the Geothermal Group Germany GmbH with Remzi Gür, owner of MASPO Enerji, a Turkish geothermal development company.
The 7th African Rift Geothermal Conference (ARGeo) will be taking place from 29 October to 4 November 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda. East Africa’s largest geothermal conference will bring together project developers, investors and government authorities. The conference includes numerous presentations and workshops as well as a post conference field trip.
GeoT will be represented at ARGeo-C7 by Dr. Horst Kreuter and Dr. Michael Kraml.

The IFAT is the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management. This year, the IFAT will take place from Monday, 14. May to Friday, 18. May 2016 in Munich, Germany.
Together with its project partner MAXX, GeoT will present the newly developped GEO AFS, an automated groundwater sampling device.
The regular sampling intervals of the GEO AFS can be programmed specifically to the individual needs or event-triggered in case a pre-defined threshold value (e.g. temperature or electric conductivity measured in the attached flow-through cell) is exceeded.
Samples are taken and stored without air contact, in darkness and a customer-defined temperature. Furthermore, the device allows for an optional addition of stabilizing chemicals (e.g. HNO3). The procedure prevents oxidation and other chemical reaction and therefore guarantees an optimum sample quality from sampling to laboratoy analyses.
Please find more information abour the GEO AFS on our website.
We would be glad to welcome you at booth no. 327 in hall C1 at IFAT in Munich!
GeoThermal Engineering GmbH (GeoT) will exhibit at GeoTHERM 2017 on 15th and 16th February in Offenburg (Germany). You will find us in hall “Ortenauhalle” at booth no. 153-158. We are pleased to welcome you there!
