The Cluster of Applied Earth Sciences (CAPES) is a hub in Central Europe for high tech companies and earth science laboratories offering state of the art services and solutions in:
- Geothermal research,
- Mining, raw material, hydrocarbon exploration,
- Environmental management,
- R&D&I projects,
- Research activity related to radwaste disposal projects.
Comprehensive services, laboratory and in situ measurements, interpretations, reservoir modeling are offered by the members of the Cluster of Applied Earth Sciences.
CAPES’ members participating at IGC 2019 in Izmir are:
- GEOCHEM Ltd, High tech petrophysical laboratory for geothermal and non-conventional exploration/research. Porosity, saturation, permeability, sorption capacity, grain size distribution measurements. R&D and engineering consultancy, laboratory automation, education and training. Geoscience laboratory of the future.
- KAROTAZS Ltd, Borehole and well-logging metrology (well-logging for well construction, condition assessments, dynamic well testing, borehole logging for mineralogical purposes), continuous development of measuring equipment and techniques.
The main purpose of CAPES' mission is to attract the attention of prospective Turkish partners for joint geothermal activities, to develop mutually advantageous R&D projects, to establish operational partnerships in the field of geothermal related earth sciences. CAPES looks for cooperation ideas, project initiatives, partnering opportunities for the Turkish as well as for third markets. CAPES offers their services to those companies who are intending to develop businesses in the Central European markets.
Being partner in the GeoEnergy Europe Metacluster CAPES also serves as gateway to EU cooperation projects. The booth (MW2) at the IGC Izmir Geothermall Congress is sponsored by two cooperating partners from GEE Metacluster: CAPES Hungary and Flodim SARL, France.
