Geo-Drill Project Research to be presented at EGC 2022

Fri, 30 September, 2022

Philipp Schroer of Geo-Drill consortium member company Fraunhofer is due to present at the European Geothermal Congress (EGC) 2022 in Berlin.

The Congress is taking place from 17-21 October 2022, with Philipp’s presentation taking place at 15:33 on 18 October.

His presentation, ‘Development of a Novel Percussion Mechanism for Downhole Hammer Drilling,’ will demonstrate some of the findings of the 12-partner Geo-Drill consortium to reduce the cost of geothermal drilling through the development of robust and low-cost 3D printed sensors and improved coatings and materials.

EGC 2022

The European Geothermal Congress is Europe’s largest event of its type, drawing stakeholders from across the continent and from further afield. The diverse event is created by the sector for the sector and includes policy and scientific sessions, an exhibition, training courses, science bars, site visits, and networking events to promote the geothermal sector in Europe and beyond.

Organised every three years, the EGC provides a unique opportunity for stakeholders from all parts of the sector, whether academic, industrial, financial, policy-making, or societal, to come together, learn, and find new ways to progress.


The Geo-Drill project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 815319
