Geothermal Power

ICS has the knowledge and engineering expertise to design, build, repair, upgrade or provide cooling tower parts for geothermal cooling towers worldwide.

Our geothermal power experience enables us to engineer quality counterflow and crossflow towers that offer operational efficiencies and durability in harsh H2S environments.

Design Considerations for Geothermal Power

ICS looks at a number of critical design elements to create your best solution:

• ICS’s proprietary Energy Management System reduces the auxiliary load of the cooling tower
• Material structure/hardware selection for H2S corrosion resistance
• Proper fill selection for aggressive water conditions and high temperatures
• Specific mechanical equipment coatings for added protection against H2S corrosion

In addition to this expertise, ICS is proud to be ISO 9001:2008 certified. Safety training and proper in-the-field execution are a top priority for ICS and we have an impeccable and fully documented safety record.

ICS’s New Geothermal Cooling Tower Projects

EDC, Palinpinon – Philippines

ICS engineered, procured and installed the first Crossflow FRP towers in the Philippines. Each new crossflow tower was built in 42 days or less: Units 1, 2 and 3.

EDC, N2N Relocation Project – Negros Island, Philippines

When EDC needed to relocate an idle SPX/Marley cooling tower, ICS dismantled, moved, and rebuilt it for optimal performance in the new environment.

Cooling Tower Repair Projects

Geothermal Cooling Tower Disaster Recovery

When the Leyte typhoon destroyed Malitbog and the cooling towers, Energy Development Corp (EDC) needed help fast. ICS was first on the ground in the Philippines to provide emergency assistance by surveying damage and supporting rehabilitation for three power plants with multiple towers.
