These are a series of pictures from the field trip to geothermal plants in the Menderes Graben near Izmir, Turkey in June 2016. Pictures are from the Gurmat Efeler, Dora 3 and Gumuskoy geothermal plants.

Following the recent IGC Turkey geothermal conference in Izmir, Turkey, we organized a field trip to three of the geothermal power plants in the region near Izmir.

The trip was organized and sponsored by Ormat.

On the trip we visited:

  • Gurmat Efeler geothermal plant 123 MW with final capacity expected to be at 170 MW
  • Dora 3 geothermal plant by MB Holding with two 17 MW turbines and a total installed capacity of 34 MW
  • Gümü?köy Geothermal Power Plant by BM Holding with an installed capacity of 13 MW
