EXERGY continues its growth in the Turkish market. The Italian company, market leader in the design and manufacturing of Organic Rankine Cycle systems, known for its pioneering Radial Outflow Turbine technology, last thursday signed a new contract with repeat customer Bestepeler Enerji Üretim Ticaret A.s for the supply of a 24 MWe geothermal ORC power plant for a geothermal field located in Aydin region - Germencik area. This contract follows the former contract signed in 2015 and confirms the trust EXERGY gained as a valuable and successful partner for its clients.
EXERGY will provide the client with a two pressure level ORC system equipped with 2x Radial Outflow Turbines, one for each pressure level, to produce totally 24 MWe of electricity from a medium enthalpy geothermal fluid. These large turbines continue to show the suitability of the Radial Outflow configuration in all sizes. The ORC cycle will employ an air cooled condensing system, thus avoiding the use of water.
Equipment for the ORC unit will be manufactured in the EXERGY Turkish workshop in Izmir, allowing the client to take advantage of an increased feed-in-tariff that the Turkish Ministry assigns to Made in Turkey technologies. The factory, which has been open for 2 years, has already produced 20 turbines suitable for the increased feed-in-tariff. The signing of this new contract raises the EXERGY portfolio to 360 MWe, with 336 MWe representing geothermal applications.
EXERGY’s CEO, Claudio Spadacinicommented on this success: “This repeat contract cements EXERGY’s position in the ORC market and our leadership in Turkey with 315 MWe portfolio achieved in 5 years. This contract is very important and confirms us again at the forefront in the Turkish market. At the moment we are also in discussion for several projects worldwide in high potential regions.”
