As Turkey looks to implement new energy targets under its economic development strategy, its focus is on increasing renewable energy sourcesand digitalization.
Helping support these goals, GE will provide its Jenbacher biogas engine technology and myPlant Asset Performance Management (APM) solution for three new landfill power production sites in Turkey owned by ITC-Ka Enerji Uretim Sanayi Ve Ticaret AS (ITC), the largest landfill gas power producer in the country.
The three landfill gas power facilities will convert organic waste into biogas that can generate renewable electricity and heat. The biogas produced will be used to fuel four of GE's Jenbacher J420 biogas engines at Eskisehir, nine at Antalya and three at the Alanya landfill sites.
The sites are configured to generate up to 50% of the common limit for nitrous oxide and will provide 22 MW of electrical power to the national grid. This represents enough power for 30,000 households in the three cities.
The equipment will be built at GE's Distributed Power facility in Jenbach, Austria, and it is expected to enter service during the second half of 2017.
The ongoing development of shale gas resources in the US has spurred infrastructure construction for both natural gas processing capacity and LNG export terminals.
Russian natural gas monopoly Gazprom is strengthening its presence in the gas market of the Middle East through the planned construction of an 11-metric-MMtpy–12-metric-MMtpy LNG plant in Iran.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction.
