Turboden, a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries company, said it delivered its first turbine made in Turkey as it is expanding into larger-sized geothermal projects. Turboden Turkey ORC Turbo Jeneratör Sanayi AŞ was founded on April 27 in Ankara, aiming to give customers access to government incentives for renewable energy generation along with providing local on-site and after-sales services, the press release said. The first turbine, with electricity generating capacity of 3 MW, was delivered to Afjet AŞ on November 24. The company’s solutions employ renewable sources and waste heat, and the new organic Rankine cycle (ORC) turbogenerator is for geothermal power production.

For a geothermal plant of 20 MW with locally manufactured ORC equipment, extra benefit close to EUR 15 million will be granted within five years by the state, the release said.

Afjet’s system will be installed in parallel with geothermal district heating of 100 MW. The facility will start operation by mid-2016, generating electric power from a low enthalpy geothermal source, exploiting hot water at 110 °C.

“After the success of four Turboden geothermal projects in Bavaria, Germany, of which three operational since 2012 with an overall installed power of 16.2 MW, of a 1 MW heat and power unit in Austria, of a 500 kW supercritical prototype in Italy, and of a 5 MW plant in Japan, in operation since June 2015, plus a backlog of additional 65.3 MW geothermal plants under construction, we are now focused on offering competitive and winning solutions in the range of 20 MW and more optimized for Turkish market’s demands,” said Paolo Bertuzzi, head of Turboden. For a geothermal plant of 20 MW with locally manufactured ORC equipment, extra benefit close to EUR 15 million will be granted within five years by the state, the release said. The company has six plants in Turkey, ranging from geothermal to biomass and waste to energy.

A 16 MW geothermal plant in Croatia was recently contracted for the Turkish geothermal development company MB Holding. Turboden also signed an order with Starwood, a chipboard specialist, for a new 5.5 MW cogeneration plant in Bursa.
