First steam turbine-generator upgrade in Turkey

Case StudiesEnergyMore NewsTurkey

Challenge:

Turkey’s electricity generating capacity is expected to grow more than 60 percent by 2023 to meet increasing demand. Private power producer Bereket Enerji has launched a modernisation initiative at the Yatagan steam power plant as part of an effort to satisfy the country’s anticipated 6 percent annual energy demand growth.

Solution:

GE is helping Bereket Enerji support Turkey’s growing energy demand with upgrades to cross-fleet equipment including Zamech steam turbines and replacements for Dolmel generators as well as static excitation systems.

Benefits:

This modernisation project is being implemented during a previously planned outage and will deliver significant operational improvements for Bereket Energi – including an increase in component availability by 28 percent, extending the facility’s operating life by an additional 15 years and increasing output by more than 20 percent.
