Abstract (englisch):

The potential of geothermal energy is undoubted. While shallow geothermal energy can be used
with minimal risk but with small energy production, deep geothermal energy has still some
barriers to overcome. Among high drilling costs, production rates below the expected range make
it hard to compete for deep geothermal energy with other energy sources. Additionally, the risks
of induced seismic events or uncontrolled water leaks leading to ground lifting obstruct the
acceptance and promotion of this technology.
With a long history in developing remote-handling tools e.g. for inspection and maintenance of
pipes and sewers, the Institute for Applied Computer Science (IAI) started in 2010 with the work
on specialized tools for deep geothermal boreholes. The overall target of this project is to provide
suitable tools for studying geothermal boreholes, especially with regard to faults and their effects
on efficiency and safety of geothermal projects as well as maintenance to recover geothermal
boreholes showing respective defects. Since the constraints downhole are challenging, the technical
solutions require a high grade of innovation and specialization and are therefore expensive.
