The sink heat exchanger has been delivered to GfS in Essen and has found its place at the outside wall of the glass model.
The sCO2-HeRo team from CVR organized a sCO2-HeRo Workshop that was held back to back with the sCO2 Summer School at CVR. The workshop took place on 1st Sep 2017 and was open to interested students from Europe and abroad (find here the sCO2-HeRo Workshop flyer).
During the Summer School, interested students were teached on the latest developments in the field of sCO2 cycle technology, with special focus on the SUSEN loop at CVR.
The sCO2-HeRo team met for their 2nd year project meeting in Řež, Czech Republic, hosted by CVR. The meeting focised on the development of a test program at GfS. The Advisory Board members gave advise on questions to be addressed when it comes to attracting regulators and operators of NPPs. In addition the partners visited the CO2 experimental loop SUSEN (SUStainable Energy), which is has been slightly modified for tests of the heat sink and the turbomachine.

On 23-24 March 2017, the AG Turbo (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Turbo) met in Duisburg, Germany, to present their cooperative projects on expansion and compression. AG Turbo is a platform of several German universities, research centres and enterprises working on pre-competitive, application-oriented research on turbomachinery, fostering synergies in low-emission power plant technology. During this meeting, UDE presented our project sCO2-HeRo, especially the design of the sCO2-HeRo turbomachinery, to stakeholders and manufacturers.
