Exploitation Of Geothermal Energy For The Production Of Electric Energy And Warm For The Town Agglomeration Of Litomerice
Journal Article: Exploitation Of Geothermal Energy For The Production Of Electric Energy And Warm For The Town Agglomeration Of Litomerice
AbstractThe Municipality of Litomerice is very actively engaged in actions for an improvement of environmental conditions in the town as well as in its surroundings. The most appropriate solution seems to be the exploitation of geothermal energy using a HDR method for which there are good conditions near the town Litomerice. Due to relatively high uncertainties of deep underground data as well as the innovativeness of the proposed HDR method, a preparatory exploration phase of the project is necessary. The estimated capacity of the drill is 50 MW(t). It will be used for the electricity generation and the heat production. The proposed power plant design is 4 MWe and 15 MWt for heating. The proposed technology of the power plant is to be decided ( Organic Rankine Cycle or Kalina Cycle). The structure is covered with deposits of the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin. Relics of Permian-Carboniferous basins are found beneath the Cretaceous strata. The sedimentary successions are underlain by relics of metamorphic rocks that, in turn, rest on granites. Several structural systems meet in this area. The systems include: southeastern margin of the Stredohori volcanic complex, the main axis of the "syncline" of the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin, north-south oriented relics of the Permian-Carboniferous basins, and SW-NE oriented Ohre rift. The Litomerice area was affected by four major phases of tectonic deformation: Cadomian, Caledonian, Hercynian, and Alpine phases.
