Toshiba has won a contract to deliver a flash steam turbine system and generator for the Kizildere III geothermal power plant in Turkey.

The plant will be built by Zorlu Energy in the Aydin province of West Anatolia, Turkey. Toshiba will provide the generation equipment in December this year.

The 95 MW triple-flash combined cycle Kizildere III geothermal power plant is claimed to be one of the largest to be built in Europe and Middle East.

The plant will integrate a 72 MW flash steam generation system that utilizes steam under high pressure with a 23 MW binary cycle power generation system using flash turbine exhaust steam to vaporize working fluid with lower boiling point and use it drive the turbine.

Toshiba will deliver the flash steam turbine generator and US-based Ormat Technologies, a partner of Toshiba in other geothermal projects, will supply the binary system.
