High performance coatings for geothermal applications

Key Features


Geo-Coat is led by a consortium of 11 partners across Europe. These include, the end users, original equipment manufacturers, universities and research institutes, and SMEs. All the partners have complementary expertise necessary to develop, disseminate and exploit Geo-Coat results.


Geo-Coat will develop specialised corrosion and erosion resistant coatings, based on selected High Entropy alloys (HEAs) and Ceramic/metal mixtures (Cermets), to be applied through thermal powder coating techniques (HVOF/laser cladding) specially developed to provide the required bond strength, hardness and density for challenging geothermal applications.
