The new ORC power plant is planned to be delivered by Q2 of 2024 and start up is forecast before the end of 2024.

Hez Enerji currently has nine geothermal license areas under development in the Aydin, Manisa, Denizli, Bilecik and Nigde regions for a total of 42,434 hectares. The company started its exploration activities in 2016 and is continuing to develop its production wells with the intention of exploiting the geothermal potential of the license areas that has been estimated to be around 300 MWe of total capacity.

Exergy will be responsible for the design, engineering and supply of the power plant. The design of the binary system consists of a cycle utilizing two Radial Outflow Turbines (ROT) of 12 MWe each and an air-cooled condensing system. The project involves the local manufacturing of the turbines and generator that will be delivered by Exergy’s subsidiary company in Turkey, Exergy Turkey, allowing Hez Enerjito benefit from the Made in Turkey incentives.

The project will contribute to further raising the share of renewable energy production in Turkey, one of the top 10 countries worldwide for geothermal power generation with 1.7 GWe of installed capacity and one of the fastest growing in the recent decades. Once in operation, the new Hez Energy power plant will reduce CO2 emissions associated to an equal production of fossil fuel power generation in the measure of approx. 70.000 tons per year, and contribute to reaching the country’s decarbonisation goals.

“This new contract is a recognition of the high reliability and quality of our technology and services and our ability to serve the Turkish market” said Luca Pozzoni, General Manager of Exergy International. “We are honoured to have a new client in our geothermal portfolio, and we are sure that this will be the beginning of a long-lasting business partnership. We are committed to continue developing the geothermal power potential in Turkey.”
