Technical assistant and design
“This was the first contract with EPC contractor TSK for geothermal plant design work. The project involved solving various technical challenges, as this was a axial exhaust turbine with a direct condenser, and there are few such turbines installed in the world. In addition, a 10% weight ratio of gas was expected, which is among the highest in the world.”
