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.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
