Programme 2017

You are here



In the afternoon of September 11, 2017 two field trips are offered.Content

E1: Field trip to geothermal power plants

- Field Trip

The field trip will visit the Turboden power plant in Traunreut. During arrival the engineers of Turboden will be available to answer all questions regarding the power plant and the installed ORC cylce. In Traunreut you will visit the power plant as well as the district heating part of the plant. Catering will be provided.

E2: Field trip to geothermal district heating plants

The second trip offers to visit the wells and the heating exchange units of thedistrict heating plant in Munich-Freiham and Unterschleißheim. This first is the most recent drilled project of the Stadtwerke München, distributing heat to a new district in the West of Munich. After the stop at the SWM station the field trip continues to the geothermal heating plant in Unterschleißheim of the GTU AG. Whereas Freiham is the youngest heating plant in the Bavarian Molasse Basin, the Unterschleißheim plant is one of the oldest, which is in operation since 2005. Meanwhile the GTU AG managed to be in the black. Here you also get the possibility to taste the thermal water from the Upper Jurassic reservoir in the nearby bath.

Point of departure is the same for either field trip (E1-power/E2-heat).

1 pm/13.00 h
Departure at the northern exit of Munich main station, exit Arnulfstrasse, Munich
7 pm/19.00 Uhr
Arrival at the northern exit of Munich main station, exit Arnulfstrasse, Munich

Please note: The actual arrival time may differ from the time schedule. Please consider any deviation for your further planning. 

Participants are asked themselves to take care of solid shoes and suitable cloths for the weather.

After the welcome speech by the organiser there will be three keynotes in the plenum. This first session of the event will be closed by the "Speed Dating" where exhibitors and sponsors can introduce themselves shortly.

(parallel to Forum V and Round Table)

The thermal water loop is the heart of a geothermal plant. Open beneath and closed above ground it is influenced by many physical variables that cause an impact on the operation and management. Forum IV discusses the major issues on scaling, inhibitors, flow dynamics, turbulence and other influences.

(parallel to Forum IV and V)

Due to the positive feedback of last year, the Round Table „Invest Geothermal“ it will be continued in this year. The high class location of the Executive Lounge of the Haus der Bayerischen Wirtschaft facilitates the dialogue between developers, investors and bankers about early stage and project financing of geothermal energy.

The participants of the congress are invited to join the Praxisforum Lounge in a nearby bar after the congress. An ambient atmophere together with a glass of beer or wine and fingerfood facilitates informal discussions, to continue the networking and chill out the day.
