Developing geothermal power technology
Verdicorp is collaborating with The University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia to develop next-generation geothermal turbine and power plant technology. The partners plan to develop supercritical turbines; heat exchangers and air-cooled condensers for geothermal, solar thermal and waste heat power generation applications. They will also develop and test new cycle fluids and fluid mixtures suitable for supercritical cycles. A cycle testing facility and high-pressure supercritical turbine will be constructed on the Pinjarra Hills campus of UQ later this year.
