  • Geothermal Energy... Power from the Depths

    The Earth's crust is a bountiful source of energy—and fossil fuels are only part of the story. Heat or thermal energy is by far the more abundant resource. To put it in perspective, the thermal energy in the uppermost six miles of the Earth's crust amounts to 50,000 times the energy of all oil and gas resources in the world! The word 'geothermal' literally means 'Earth' plus 'heat.' ...

  • Geothermal plant protects pumps - case study

    This large geothermal company needed reliable equipment in the deserts of southeastern California. Geothermal plants turn water into to steam to drive turbines. Protecting the pumps is paramount. Keeping the inflowing water clean of debris and marine life, an IWS traveling water screen provides reliable removal with minimal labor. Debris is lifted from the water, and dropped directly into a ...

  • Geothermal Heat Pump (GHP) - Case Studies

    Case Study: “GHP schools used approximately 26% less source energy per square foot of floor area,” according to an evaluation of Lincoln, Nebraska schools by the Department of Energy. The report concludes that the schools using GHP technology “outperform others in the school district.” Case Study: Annual electrical consumption in Fort Polk ...

  • Exergy analysis and pressure optimisation of geothermal binary power plants

    Binary geothermal power plants are used for power production from moderate temperature geothermal reservoirs (85-170°C). In performance analysis of those plants, the second law of thermodynamics is used like in other conventional power plants. In this paper, the exergy analysis and pressure optimisation methods are described for binary power plants. The method described is applied to a ...

  • Case Study - 2.4 MW Geothermal Wellhead Power Plant

    Eburru, Kenya – 2012 Under a contract with Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen), GDA designed, manufactured, tested, and shipped all of the major equipment for a 2.4 MW wellhead power plant at Eburru, Kenya. GDA also provided supervision and technical support during installation and commissioning of the plant. At the heart of the plant is an Elliott 8-stage GYR turbine. This ...

  • As Global Demand for Electricity Grows, Geothermal Energy Heats Up

    January 9, 2017 — At 2:46 p.m. local time on Friday, March 11, 2011, Japan was rocked by the largest earthquake ever to strike its shores. The 9.1 magnitude quake triggered a devastating tsunami that killed more than 15,000 people. It also took out the back-up emergency generators that cooled the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant complex, causing a series of ...

  • Striving For Perfection: Flow Energy Partnership Improves Geothermal Energy Production

    Since the early twentieth century, geothermal energy has been used to produce electricity. In the 1980’s and 90’s, rapid expansion in the demand for geothermal energy put pressure on suppliers to reduce costs and increase efficiencies. Now geothermal energy production is becoming a common practice around the globe. One of the largest energy companies in Turkey is blazing the ...

  • Case Study - 30MW Single Flash Power Plant and 20 MW Expansion

    Lihir Island, Papua New Guinea – 2005 In December 2003, Lihir Management Company awarded GDA a contract for supply and site supervision for a 30MW (net) geothermal power plant. In 2005, Lihir contracted with GDA for an additional 20 MW of plant equipment. The picture at the right shows the main power house and annex under construction. The power house is the larger open section which ...

  • Are you eligible for a manufacturing tax credit?

    The United States has been generous with tax credits for energy production. But until now, it’s been somewhat miserly about giving breaks to those who make the equipment that makes the energy – or saves it.That’s changed with creation of the Advanced Energy Manufacturing Credit (MTC), part of the federal stimulus package. The 30% tax credit makes $2.3 billion available for new, expanded, or ...
