A 5.5 MW electric ORC power plant connected to the grid in Bavaria
On January 13th, Turboden connected to the grid its up to 5.5 MW electric ORC power plant delivered to GKT Geothermische Kraftwerkgesellschaft Traunreut GmbH, a company which operates a geothermal well in Bavaria, Germany.

The 5.5 MW Traunreut plant is the fourth geothermal unit installed in Germany, confirming Turboden the leader in geothermal power capacity in the country with its 20 MWe fleet. Turbodens geothermal fleet currently accounts for 10 plants (49 MW gross), with locations in Turkey, Europe, and Japan.
