Italian ORC geothermal power plant supplier EXERGY has signed a contract for the delivery of a 12.6 MWe geothermal power plant to GCL ND Enerji in Turkey.

In a release today, EXERGY reports on having signed a new contract for the delivery of a geothermal power plant. The Italian company, leading manufacturer of ORC systems with the Radial Outflow Turbine technology owning the second largest geothermal binary fleet worldwide with approximately 370 MWe in portfolio, has recently signed a new contract in Turkey with GCL ND ENERJI A.S. for a 12.6 MWe geothermal power plant.

Located in Alasehir, Manisa region, the plant will exploit a medium enthalpy resource at approximately 150 °C to generate 12.6 MWe of electricity from an ORC system equipped with Radial Outflow Turbine technology and utilizing an air cooled condensing system. Some of the power plant components will be manufactured domestically in EXERGY’s Turkish workshop based in Izmir and thanks to an exclusive partnership with NIDEC ASI for the supply of the generators. Made-in-Turkey production will allow GCL to benefit from an additional total incentive of $0.02/kWh on top of the basic feed-in-tariff rate of $0.105/ kWh, thus the increase of 19% in revenue for the client.
