Italian Exergy reports the sale of a radial outflow turbine as part of an ORC binary power plant for Turkish company Akca Enerji in the region of Dinzli in Turkey.

Italian EXERGY reports on the sale of another of its Radial Outflow Turbines (ROT).

The turbine sold now is a key component in the supply of a complete Organic Rankine Cycle binary power plant for Turkish company AKÇA ENERJ?, to be installed in the region of Denizli.

The AKÇA unit will have a power output of 3.5 MWe when it becomes operational in October 2014. The Turkish geothermal market has become one of the world’s most important in recent years, and this ‘low enthalpy’ project (the resource is only slightly more than 100°C) is forecast to be the first of many such projects within the region.

EXERGY provide a unique solution for the low enthalpy market, which lead to higher efficiency at a reasonable price. This is due to the unique capability of the radial outflow turbine to accommodate more than one pressure level entry on a single turbine. These multiple pressure systems are particularly suited to low enthalpy projects, where they can produce up to 20% more power than single pressure systems generated by competitor turbines.

Asked to explain EXERGY’s success in this hard fought project, International Sales Director Anthony Hinde said recently “This sale is a reflection of the technical strength of EXERGY’s team, as well as the ability of our Radial Outflow Turbine to provide higher efficiencies. In addition to this, EXERGY’s in-house manufacturing capability has allowed us to meet our customer expectations with a faster delivery schedule.”
