Analysis of the corrosion risk in the geothermal circuit of an EGS-type power plant

Goal : to develop a corrosion risk matrix in order to adapt the operating conditions and also preventive treatment and monitoring solutions in an EGS (Enhanced Geothermal System) type of geothermal power plant.

  • Inventory of the different forms of corrosion and parameters controlling them
  • Analysis of the corrosion risks based on chemical data, operating conditions, the nature of the materials (and coatings, if any), the summary of results from previous studies, observations and measurements made in situ
  • Developing the corrosion risk matrices and diagram
