Japan: New 6 MW ORC Geothermal Plant Starts Up

Turboden opens 6 MW in Japan (renews)

Turboden has started operations at a 6 MW geothermal power plant in Japan. The plant has been built in cooperation with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and is the first in Japan fed by a two-phase geothermal resource.

The company said that after separation the steam phase condenses in the evaporator while the preheater receives only a liquid phase. Turboden supplied its ORC turbine and process engineering for the plant, and carried out commissioning and plant start-up.
