Doosan Škoda turbine island at the core of massive waste-to-power plant in Turkey

Published on: 

Doosan Škoda Power has secured a contract to supplymachinery for the largest waste incineration plant in Turkey and Europe, from the Swiss cleantech company Hitachi Zosen Inova AG. The Istanbul WtE (waste-to-energy) project will help utilize around one million tonnes of waste per annum.

The WtE plant will be later operated by the city of Istanbul's subsidiary İSTAÇ. It will be located in close proximity to the Istanbul New Airport, which is under constructionandhas theambition to become the largest airport in the world after the last phase is completed.

‘Historically speaking, Turkey is a successful territory for Doosan Škoda Power. It is therefore our great pleasure to also play a part in such a significant project within the newly emerging, up-and-coming waste-to-energysegment in Turkey,’said Tomáš Bayer, the company's sales manager for Turkey.

Pilsen's manufacturer will supply a turbine island, whose core is made up of a modular 85.8MWel gross DST-S10steam turbine, generator and other equipment, including full assembly and commissioning of the machinery.


The individual technology units will be delivered to Istanbul as soon as next autumn, while putting the WtE plant into operation is scheduled for 2021. Once the airport is completed, Doosan Škoda Power's turbine will also serve as a cogeneration unit, which will supply the Istanbul New Airport with heat via newly built district heating system.

With this contract, Doosan Škoda Power continues in successful collaboration with Hitachi Zosen Inova AG, for which Doosan Škoda Power has commissioned a similar WtE project in Dublin, Ireland this year.
