Doosan Škoda supplies 15 MW steam turbine to chemical plant in Turkey

Steam turbine manufacturer Doosan Škoda Power will supply a 15MW steam turbine including accessories for a planned chemical plant in Emet, Turkey. Thus, the Pilsen-based company will follow on the supply of a turbine and a generator for Europe’s largest waste incinerator plant built in Istanbul.

The Etimaden EMET Sulfuric Acid Production Plant is being built in Emet in Kütahya Province, Turkey. The factory will be in continuous operation for 330 days a year and the steam turbine will generate electricity from residual heat for both the plant’s own operation and the surrounding area. Doosan Škoda Power will supply all accessories along with the turbine itself and the company’s engineers will also supervise assembly of the unit at the construction site.

“EMET Sulphuric Acid Production facility will make a significant contribution to Turkey’s boron treatment and boron products process which have a wide range of usage areas including but not limited to agriculture, cleaning, metallurgy, health and textile. Alongside the production of sulphuric acid, the plant will also supply electricity to the EMET Boron Works by the help of Steam Turbine and Generator which are supplied by Doosan Skoda. In this regard, as EKON team we are very pleased to cooperate with Doosan Skoda and we would like to sustain this cooperation as we have already done for another ETI Maden project in Bandırma, Turkey”, said Yaman COŞKUN, representative of EKON.

“The project entails a standard steam turbine with accessories but with an atypical delivery deadline. We have 12 months from the date of signing the contract to supply the unit to the construction site,” said project manager Lucie Franková. The design and engineering work and material procurement are currently underway. The first delivery, which included foundation bolts and other built-in components, was sent to Turkey at the end of February. Doosan Škoda Power has already received a rotor forging from its supplier, which is scheduled to reach the construction site along with other components by September at the latest.
