Enogia has launched the factory acceptance tests of the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) module which will soon be installed in Chaunoy on the Vermillion site (one of the sedimentary demo-sites). The functional tests have been validated and the performance tests are in progress.

The ORC is equipped with a plate and cassette heat exchanger. This titanium evaporator allows to overcome the constraints of corrosion caused by the geothermal fluid. This ORC will validate the production of electricity on this type of installation.This ORC will be installed at a low-flow, low-temperature (90°C) site. The electricity production is estimated between 14 and 18 KW, depending on the ambient temperature.
