The sCO2-HeRo team from CVR organizes a sCO2-HeRo Workshop that will be held back to back with the sCO2 Summer School at CVR. The workshop is planned for 1st Sep 2017 and open to interested students from Europe and abroad.
The Summer School will take place in Rez, CZ, Aug 27th – Sep 1st, 2017, and focuses on the latest developments in the field of sCO2 cycle technology. The Summer School is open to all interested students.
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.
In January 2017, the sCO2-HeRo consortium met for its midterm meeting in Stuttgart, Germany, to discuss the technical details on the system components, their implementation into the glass model at GfS and a detailed time schedule for testing and installation. In addition, the partners participated in an EU-funded Exploitation Strategy Seminar, led by an dedicated innovation manager who helped in setting up a draft list of project results (in preparation to an Exploitation Plan). The partners also had the possibility to visit the sCO2 loop SCARLETT at the University of Stuttgart that is also used to test the compact HX developed for sCO2-HeRo.
