The United Downs Deep Geothermal Project (UDDGP) in Cornwall, England has reached its target depth on 23.4.2019. The well UD-1 has a depth of 5275 m MD / 5057 TVD.
Over the next days, geophysical logs and hydraulic tests will be run in order to give an indication of the target structure’s permeability. Subsequently, the rig will be moved to start drilling the second well UD-2.
GeoT contributes its reservoir modelling expertise to the United Downs project within the framework of two projects (S4CE / MEET) under the Horizon 2020 EU framework program for research and innovation. S4CE is the abbreviation for Science4CleanEnergy and MEET stand for Multidisciplinary and multi-context demonstrationof EGS exploration and Exploitation Techniques and potentials.
GeoT is pleased to announce that the comapny will exhibit again at GeoTHERM this year. The GeoTHERM expo & congress that celebrates its thirteenth birthday this year, will be taking place on 14 and 15 February 2019 in Offenburg, Germany.
Within the last years the combination of trade fair and congress has become the biggest geothermal energy event in the world. The congress programm is subdivided into shallow and deep geothermal energy. On Friday, 15 February, Dr Horst Kreuter (CEO of GeoT) will give a presentation on the possibilities of lithium extraction from geothermal brines in the Upper Rhine Graben.
We are pleased to welcome you in Offenburg! You will find us in hall “Ortenauhalle” at booth no. 167.
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.
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 2018 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!
GeoT is pleased to announce that the company will exhibit again at this year’s GeoTHERM expo & congress, the biggest geothermal energy event in the world. The event will take place on 1 and 2 March 2018 in Offenburg, Germany. You will find us at booth no. 150-155. We would be pleased to welcome you there!
Please find more information about the congress at the event website.
GeoT is pleased to announce that the company will exhibit at the GEC – geotechnics expo & congress 2017 on 25 and 26 October 2017 in Offenburg, Germany!
In Offenburg, GeoT will present the results of the R&D project „GeoTief“ for automated fluid sampling and automatic evaluation of geochemical data, including a presentation of GeoT’s senior geochemist Dr Michael Kraml on 26 October 2018.
We look forward to welcome you at our booth in Offenburg!
