Turkey: Procurement Process for 16 MW Turcas BM Kuyucak Geothermal Project to open Next Month

Tender for New 16 MW Geothermal Power Plant (USTDA)

POWER Engineers, Inc., headquartered in Hailey, Idaho, recently completed a feasibility study for the construction of a 16 MW geothermal power plant by Turcas BM Kuyucak Geothermal Power Inc. (TBK), a Turkish joint venture owned primarily by BM Holding and Turcas Energy Holding. After confirming both the technical and financial viability of the new facility, POWER Engineers, Inc. submitted their findings to TBK, which is in the process of securing financing for the project.

Once it is up and running, this modern facility, located near the town of Pamukören, Turkey, will be capable of efficiently generating electricity from geothermal energy sources, an increasingly important component of Turkey’s electricity portfolio.

The procurement process for the geothermal plant will begin in January 2016, with tenders to be released between January and April 2016. Factoring in an estimated 8 to 9 month installation timeline, TBK expects the facility to be commercially operational by September 2017.
