CO2OLHEAT project will last 48 months – from June 2021 to May 2025.
It is divided into nine Work Packages (WPs) that are mutually related and thus encourage cooperation amongst the partners.
WP1’s main objective is to model the system which will be integrated and demonstrated in the real industrial environment of Prachovice (CZ) cement plant. This system includes the demo plant layout, analysis of its integration, demo cycle optimisation and off-design analysis.
The developed models will be tailored for several energy-intensive industries and will be applied to business and replication activities. They will mainly involve market scenarios, definition of boundary conditions and interaction with electric grid.
WP1 starts at month 1 and ends at month 24.
The CO2OLHEAT power block compression will be performed by a turboexpander unit composed by a compressor and an expander operating on the same shaft line. This unit faces several design and operational challenges which will be addressed in this work package. The main objectives of WP2 are to:
WP2 starts at month 1 and ends at month 42.
WP3 will cover the design and production of the net Power/grid connected 2MW sCO2 turbine. The main objectives of this WP are:
WP3 starts at month 1 and ends at month 42.
WP4’s main objective is to:
WP4 starts at month 1 and ends at month 40.
Operational flexibility is one of the key advantages of sCO2 power systems compared to Rankine-based alternatives (Steam/ORC).
In this context, the objectives of WP5 are to:
WP5 starts at month 1 and ends et month 48.
WP6 aims to:
WP6 starts at month 18 and ends at month 48.
With a strong connection with WP1, replication studies and assessment studies will be conducted to identify best deployment strategies for CO2OLHEAT solution. Thanks to the replication feasibility studies many aspects related to regulation, social acceptance, lifecycle assessment will be considered.
WP7 starts at month 12 and ends at month 48.
The main objective of WP8 is to define effective strategies for communication and dissemination of the project activities and outcomes to the potential user community and business partners, scientific peers and policy makers as well as non-scientific audience. To this end, this WP will establish effective communication means, channels and platforms.
Clear go-to-market strategies for products and services will be developed and disseminated in an action plan outlining the target audience and how this technology can achieve competitive advantages for different markets as well as its environmental positive impact.
WP8 starts at month 1 and ends at month 48.
The main objective of WP9 is to perform project governance and to establish and maintain a communication and controlling infrastructure. All tasks will be accomplished by using state of the art management instruments and methods. This should facilitate an unobstructed and successful project and research evolution.
WP9 starts at month 1 and ends at month 48.
