In a release, Ormat Technologies reports that it successfully delivered yet another two geothermal power plants in Turkey, reaching a total of 34 Ormat operating plants in the country.

The Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources in Turkey has given its operation license to additional two Ormat supplied geothermal power plants on October 31, 2018 – the 32 MW Celikler Pamukoren 4 and the 30 MW Turkerler JES-3. Both power plants were commissioned on time and demonstrated over the contracted capacity.

The power plants are based on the Ormat Energy Converter (OEC) technology which brings the capacity of the Ormat based operating power plant in Turkey to 635 MW, with an additional 7 projects under construction that will add 209 MW to Turkey’s grid.

The turbines, oil skids and other auxiliaries were manufactured by Ormaturk – Ormat’s manufacturing facility in Turkey in accordance to Ormat’s strict standards of quality. Due to the Turkish made products, the project is eligible to a significant incentive under the Turkish regulations.

Ormat is dedicated to the Turkish market and will sustain its support and development activities in this market while looking to broaden market opportunities.
