GE is helping Bereket Enerji support Turkey's growing energy demand with upgrades to cross-fleet equipment including Zamech steam turbines and replacements for Dolmel generators as well as static excitation systems.
This modernization project is being implemented during a previously planned outage and will deliver significant operational improvements for Bereket Energi - including an increase in component availability by 28 percent, extending the facility's operating life by an additional 15 years and increasing output by more than 20 percent.
