10 July 2017
GE’s Power Services business provides its Fleet360* total plant solutions to modernize two Turkish lignite-fired coal power plants for Yeniköy Kemerköy Elektrik Üretim ve Ticaret A.Ş. The upgrade of the two facilities, which serve 521,000 homes in Turkey and meet approximately 5% of Turkey’s energy demand, will help increase the plants’ capacity by 197.5 megawatts (MW), while also significantly decreasing plant emissions.
The project with Yeniköy Kemerköy Elektrik Üretim ve Ticaret A.Ş. is the latest example of GE’s commitment to modernizing coal-fired power plants and generation equipment around the globe.
GE’s Powering Efficiency COE brings together cross-business expertise and technologies in its energy businesses to apply a total plant hardware and software solution approach to boost the efficiency of the world’s new and existing coal-fired power plants and to significantly reduce their emissions.
GE has supported Yeniköy Kemerköy Elektrik Üretim ve Ticaret A.Ş. since its privatization in 2014. Installations will start in July 2019 and are expected to be completed by October 2020, with the equipment being shipped from GE’s facilities in Poland, Switzerland, Germany and the Czech Republic.
