Per Kjellgren from Geo-Drill consortium partners Flowphys AS is due to present on the project at the European Geothermal Congress 2022 (EGC 2022).
The Congress is taking place in Berlin from 17-21 October 2022 providing a stage to discuss new developments in the science, technology, industry, and policy of geothermal energy.
Per’s presentation, ‘Investigation of a Fluidic Oscillator DTH Hammer Drill’ will take place at 15:30 on Tuesday 18 October. The Geo-Drill project has been developing DTH Hammer to advance geothermal drill monitoring through low-cost and robust 3D printed sensors as well as improving component life through advanced materials and coatings. These technologies have the potential to drastically reduce the cost of geothermal drilling operations.
The European Geothermal Congress is held every three years and is Europe’s largest congress dedicated to the geothermal sector, attracting people from Europe and outside. Including a range of events such as policy and scientific sessions, an exhibition, training courses, science bars, site visits, and networking events, EGC 2022 brings together the academic, industrial and societal aspects of the geothermal sector.
The Geo-Drill project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 815319
