With Turkey’s electricity generating capacity expected to grow more than 60% by 2023 to meet increasing demand, GE had an opportunity to replace, upgrade and modernize many of the country’s power plant equipment.
GE is helping Bereket Enerji support Turkey's swelling energy demand with upgrades to cross-fleet equipment like Zamech steam turbines, not to mention replacements for Dolmel generators and 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%, extending the facility's operating life by an additional 15 years. Combined, this will increase output by more than 20%.
The modernization will include replacing five Zamech steam turbines, and five Dolmel generators, and five Rafako boilers.
First-of-its-kind BHEL steam turbine retrofit extends the unit’s life by 25 years and restores its output back to its original capacity.
