The hottest new geothermal energy developed in Sou

South Australia has developed new geothermal energy that can be used for 70 years

the leader of South Australia's geothermal energy development - geodynamics normally does not see oil dripping or intermittent high tonnage. A geothermal well drilled by geodynamics in the Cooper basin of South Australia last Wednesday finally spewed out the first stream of hot gas. In the past three years, the company has drilled two mines with a depth of four kilometers in inaminka, the northernmost part of South Australia, in order to export steam power from the bottom of the well heated by underground hot granite

it took three hours for the first hot water to reach the surface, and then it was introduced into a tailings pond. At this time, the water temperature reached nearly 170 ℃. The steam rushed into the sky, and the sound was as deafening as a jet engine. Geodynamics claims that the electricity generated by geothermal resources in this area can be used for 70 years in Australia. The name of the company's first well is "Habanero 2", which is named after a spicy pepper. The company hopes to spray hot water up to 240 degrees Celsius in the next few weeks, so as to ensure the commercial value of geothermal power plants. The biggest advantage of geothermal power generation is that it does not produce carbon dioxide greenhouse gases. Geodynamics has signed the first contract with Santos, an oil and gas giant in South Australia, and plans to provide 5 megawatts of electricity produced by the trial operation of the first group of geothermal generating units to Santos from 2007. Originenergy, Australia's largest developer of green precision and high energy, has also agreed to purchase half of the total power generation of about 30 megawatts after geodynamics was officially put into operation in 2010. Andrew, general manager of large projects of the company Andrewstock said that Origen intended to work with a geothermal power plant in the Cooper basin to supply power to Adelaide City over the olympicdam, with a year-on-year increase of 58.3%, or the leighcreek, and to Sydney over the brokenhill

it is reported that the cost of this kind of underground thermal rock power generation will eventually be equivalent to that of coal and natural gas thermal power generation - about $40 per thousand kwh
