Milos Geothermal Energy Driving ORC Turbo generator and Seawater Desalination Plant

Objective

The main objective of this innovative demonstration project is to provide the Milos community with sufficient quantity of clear drinking water in a cost and energy efficient way avoiding environmental impacts. This objective will be achieved by combining the technologies of ORC electricity generation, ME distillation and absorption chilling. Technological knowledge generated during the project realisation will be available on European level and this is essential to addressing the serious issues of sustainable development. The project will contribute to sustainable development by focusing on the local community's key problem crucial for social weel-being and economic competitiveness. The project leads to an improvement of the local economy, life quality, emission reduction.
