Delivery of the equipment is expected to be completed within 16 months from the contract date.

The new power plant is expected to contribute to the local authorities’ efforts to develop the base load needs of Turkey through dependable, indigenous and clean geothermal power, optimizing the energy utilization by converting both geothermal steam and brine from geothermal wells into electric power.

The new plant will use air-cooled condensers and allow 100% geothermal fluid re-injection, which serves both to sustain the reservoir and to produce electrical power with virtually no environmental impact.

Dita Bronicki, CEO of Ormat Technologies, said: This marks our fourth order to supply equipment for geothermal power in Turkey, and continues our leadership position in creating clean energy both in terms of capacity and the number of power plants in the country.
