Geothermal power is a promising alternative to conventional power production. Different from wind and solar based energy geothermal power is independent on weather conditions and can be used all-the-year. This makes it suitable as base load.
Linde Engineering is able to provide the full spectrum of geothermal power plants – from a turbine/generator package to a turnkey plant including a brine water loop; all under consideration of specific customer requirements on design, execution, fire and noise protection, emissions, etc.
The applied Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) process is most suitable for low calorific wells with a temperature range of 90 °C to 200 °C. It can utilise both hydrothermal energy from enhanced geothermal systems and process heat from industrial plants.
The ORC process converts energy provided by the client into electricity. Power
Process steps include:
the ORC process
air or water cooling, and
district heating (if requested)
In addition to the above the Linde Gases Division is able to offer plant operation.
