  • The cost of drilling wells for geothermal power plants are considerably affected by the slurry used for the cementing job. Present slurry used for geothermal wells has a relatively high water content which results in a low early strength. To shorten the production process for each well the slurry was modified by help of chemical admixtures and a light-weight aggregate.
