ABSTRACT

An East of England research centre is developing a proposal for the LC-SC3-RES-12-2018 call. The project aims to develop technology for geothermal power to ensure flexible, resilient, intelligent and smart operation. They require a manufacturer of heat pipe heat exchangers to complete the consortium. The partner will be required to develop the heat exchanger to transfer the heat from the geothermal fluids to a storage facility.


FULL DESCRIPTION

Progressive replacement of fossil fuels used in the heat and power sectors by means of renewable energy sources can increase energy security, energy price stability as well as independence from imported sources. However, to unlock the full potential of renewable heat and power solutions to significantly contribute to the energy system, improvement of individual technologies performance and their incorporation into the energy system is needed.

The project aims to develop technology for geothermal power to ensure flexible, resilient, intelligent and smart operation.

High level objectives:

Flexible power source with:

Ramp up or down by 30 (as below as possible)-90% of nominal capacity
Ramp rate 15% of nominal/minute
Spinning reserve 5% of nominal
Maximum efficiency deviation of turbine at minimum load (30% load) 5%

Flexible heating source with:

Ramp up or down by 0-100% of nominal capacity
Ramp rate 25% of nominal/minute
Spinning reserve 10% of nominal

The research centre has a lot of strong partners already involved, including a couple of geothermal plant operators in Iceland and Turkey respectively. They are now looking for a manufacturer of heat pipe heat exchangers whose role would be to develop the heat exchanger to transfer the heat from the geothermal fluids to the storage facility that will be built.
