A tender for the procurement of technology for a 16 MW geothermal power plant by Turcas BM Kuyucak Geothermal Power Inc. (TBK), a Turkish joint venture owned primarily by BM Holding and Turcas Energy Holding is expected to be released in January/ April 2016.

Published on the website of the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), a business opportunity will open up with a tender expected for this month.

POWER Engineers, Inc. recently completed a feasibility study for the construction of a 16 MW geothermal power plant by Turcas BM Kuyucak Geothermal Power Inc. (TBK), a Turkish joint venture owned primarily by BM Holding and Turcas Energy Holding.  After confirming both the technical and financial viability of the new facility, POWER Engineers, Inc. submitted their findings to TBK, which is in the process of securing financing for the project.

Once it is up and running, this modern facility, located near the town of Pamukören, Turkey, will be capable of efficiently generating electricity from geothermal energy sources, an increasingly important component of Turkey’s electricity portfolio.

The procurement process for the geothermal plant will begin in January 2016, with tenders to be released between January and April 2016.  Factoring in an estimated 8 to 9 month installation timeline, TBK expects the facility to be commercially operational by September 2017.

Major types of equipment and services needed for the implementation of TBK’s geothermal power plant include:

  • Binary technology turbines
  • Engineering services
  • Control valves
  • Transformers
  • Transmission lines and substation equipment
  • Air cooled condensers
  • Emergency diesel generator
  • Pumps
  • Heat exchangers
  • Electrical Switchgear and Motor Control Centers
  • Instrumentation and Plant Control System
  • Balance of plant equipment (fire system, air system, chemical control, etc.)
