The client Çelikler Jeothermal Elektrik Uretim A.S. are active in the energy, construction and mining sectors. The Pamukören geothermal fields of the Menderes basin (Turkey) have a large potential for electrical production due to high enthalpy levels and the abundance of resources in the area. Çelikler were looking to develop a series of new power plants in Pamukören and to create a new project in the Sultanhisar region. They were looking to realize a total of 120 MW over 6 new geothermal power trains.

The proposal presented by EXERGY and its consortium partners (Atlas Copco and SPIG) was selected due to the high level of efficiency achievable and an intelligent plant design. As a result, future maintenance has been simplified and resources revenues maximized. EXERGY, working in cooperation with experienced and respected partners were responsible for the process design and supply of the entire power cycle , providing the best overall solution to the client.

EXERGY's strong performance during the execution phase of the project has led the client to order further units for adjoining installations.

After a successfull operation of the Pamukören I and II modules, Çelikler opted to undertake an extension of the Pamukören III and IV modules plus a new project in Sultanhisar with the same partners and technology utilized. Thanks to the Pamukören and Sultanhisar projects Çelikler is the biggest player in the binary geothermal energy production in Turkey today and together with EXERGY will deliver more than 1000 GWh per year of renewable energy to the Turkish energy grid.
