During an eventful week for the geothermal sector in Turkey, with a World Bank Geothermal Workshop, the IGC Turkey geothermal conference, Ormat opened its newly established manufacturing facility in Izmir.

During the inauguration event, Isaac Angel, CEO of Ormat and Dr. Halit Kera cut the ribbon of the new facilities, in an event that brought together Turkey’s geothermal industry leaders.

The uniqueness of OrmaTurk manufacturing facility is the ability to manufacture all turbine components and then assemble them, all under Ormat’s strict standards of quality. The facility is operated by 20 Turkish employees, operating state-of- the-art machinery around the clock to meet deadlines to customers.

OrmaTurk delivers its Turkish customers a real, full made-in- Turkey turbine in compliance with Turkish regulations, as well as supporting the Turkish economy.

Turkey is a key market for Ormat. Over the last decade Ormat installed its state-of- the-art binary technologies in 19 power plants totaling 340 MW, and has under construction a current pipeline of 11 projects that will add 230 MW to Turkey’s grid.
