Tapping into earth's underground energy

Our planet contains tremendous renewable power, and much of it lies beneath the surface. It is an exceptionally constant source of energy, meaning that it is not dependent on either wind or sun, and is available all the time. Geothermal energy solutions from MAN Energy Solutions tap into this limitless source of renewable hydrothermal energy.

Powering the future with geothermal energy 

Expanding the power of the earth

Geothermal energy is an excellent, practically endless source of power – but utilization can be challenging.

A clean, renewable energy resource that produces virtually no emissions, geothermal power is produced by reservoirs of hot water miles beneath the earth's surface. Our robust steam turbines use the steam and brine from these magma-heated underground reservoirs to produce electricity.

 

Efficient, robust equipment for the world's toughest jobs

Geothermal solutions from MAN Energy Solutions are dependable and powerful enough to handle the volatile conditions involved in harnessing this energy.

We design geothermal power plant solutions that effectively utilize the earth's intense hydrothermal resources. To access geothermal energy, you have to drill wells in a process similar to the one used when drilling for oil. These wells typically recover high-temperature steam from far below the earth, around 1500 to 3000 m. Dry steam and flash steam power stations employ our proven steam turbines, which operate reliably under the toughest conditions.

How you benefit:

  • Sustainable, renewable energy
  • Reliable and stable technology
  • Durable enough for the toughest requirements
  • Proven industrial design
