Novel Drilling Technology Combining Hydro-Jet and Percussion for ROP Improvement in deep geothermal drilling

Project description

Making geothermal energy a more viable alternative

As Europe seeks to meet environmental goals, securing alternative energy sources is of vital importance. In an effort to beat climate change, one possible alternative is geothermal energy. However, it presents its own challenges in the form of low heat recovery efficiency, long drilling times and significant initial investment costs. The EU-funded ORCHYD project will meet these challenges by developing groundbreaking drilling technology that could significantly improve drilling speed and reduce cost while providing the means necessary to improve energy recovery. The goal is to make geothermal energy more economically viable, securing another valuable energy source in Europe's fight against climate change.
