Zagreb-based MB Geothermal, part of Turkey's MB Holding, has signed a deal with Croatian project design firm Ekonerg for the design of a 19.9 MW geothermal power plant, local media reported on Friday.

The Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) plant will be build in Legrad, close to the city of Koprivnica in Croatia's north, and will produce some 165 GWh of electricity per year, news wire SeeBiz reported.

The Legrad plant will deliver its output to the power grid in northern Croatia, with MB Geothermal having already requested a study on the optimal technical solution for the connection to the grid from the Croatian electricity transmission system operator, HOPS, SeeBiz said. 

In December, Italian turbogenerator manufacturer Turboden, a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries company, completed the commissioning of MB Holding's first geothermal power plant in Croatia - the 17.5 MW Velika Ciglena plant, whose ORC turbine system was delivered by Turboden.
