Toshiba Corporation has concluded a package deal agreement (PDA) with Turkish company Zorlu Energy for the supply of steam turbines and generators (STGs) for geothermal power plants that Zorlu Energy Group will construct in Turkey.
Under the terms of the PDA, Zorlu Energy Group will investigate three locations where the company plans to construct plants by October 2020. If the results of the survey meet the terms of the PDA, Toshiba will negotiate for supply of STGs for all three plants.
Commenting on the contract, Takao Konishi, Vice President of the Thermal & Hydro Power Systems & Services Division in Toshiba's Energy Systems & Solutions Company said, "Toshiba and Zorlu Energy Group have successfully worked together Unit 1, 2 of the Kizildere III Geothermal Power Plant and Alasehir Geothermal Power Plant and I am certain that the excellent performance and advanced technology of our STG can contribute even more to geothermal power supply in Turkey.”
Energy consumption in Turkey is growing fast, driven by population growth and economic development, and both
the government and the private sector are promoting projects to increase capacity. Toshiba concluded a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Zorlu Energy Group in January 2016, covering construction of geothermal, thermal and hydro power plants.
Toshiba delivered Japan's first commercial-use geothermal steam turbine and generator in 1966, and since then has delivered 54 turbines around the world, with a total capacity of 3,519 megawatts.
