European Research Project - GEOTHERMICA

GEOTHERMICA is a European project to promote research and innovation in geothermal energy to make geothermal energy reliabe, safe and cost-competitive. GEOTHERMICA combines the financial resources and know-how of 20 geothermal energy research and innovation programme owners and managers from 16 countries and their regions. 

A multinational consortium of geothermal experts has launched a GEOTHERMICA project to develop a new glass fiber reinforced epoxy casing system for geothermal application, short GRE GEO. The casing system shall be used in new installations as well as utilized for workover for old wells. Furthermore, the project will include the guidelines and tools for the design, qualification, and installation of the GRE piping system.
