Science & Technology: Researching Corrosion Resistant Coatings for High Temperature Geothermal Applications

Investigating geothermal coatings for the future of renewable energy (TWI)

TWI, an U.K.-based independent research and technology organisation, is co-ordinating a recently won European Horizon 2020 project for the development of novel and cost-effective corrosion resistant coatings for high temperature geothermal applications. This project, dubbed Geo-Coat, comes from the low carbon energy call to develop next generation technologies for renewable electricity and heating/cooling.

Thus, the Geo-Coat target is to design the new high performance coatings to resist each of the specified threats or combinations of threat, as experimentally derived at key failure points within geothermal runs, and to apply them only to the affected components.

The project will last for three years, with the Geo-Coat partners coming from the UK, Iceland, Romania and Norway.
