Science & Technology: Developing Better Deep Geothermal Pumps

Improving pumps for geothermal energy requirements (IDW-online)

Geothermal power plants and heating networks use natural water resources from deep water and rock strata. In terms of the efficiency of the plants, the drilling costs and the premature wear and replacement of the feed pumps have previously made a considerable impact on the balance sheet.

The BINE-Projektinfo brochure "Developing robust pumps for geothermal energy" (03/2016) presents modified submersible centrifugal pumps that are specifically adapted to the requirements of deep geothermal energy.

The prototypes for the new pumps are already able to withstand the mineral deposits from the thermal water for longer and provide greater energy efficiency than the previous units.
