July 5 (Renewables Now) - Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd (MHPS) on Wednesday said it has received an order for long-term parts management and services at the Germencik geothermal power plant in Turkey that uses two MHPS 47.5-MW steam turbines.

The order, with an initial term of seven years, has been awarded by Turkish independent power producer (IPP) Gurmat Electric Generation Co In, which, MHPS said, is the largest geothermal power plants operator and investor in Turkey with 185 MW of operating capacity and 160 MW under development.

The Germencik plant is located in the city of Aydin, not far from Izmir, and has two units that became operational in 2009 and 2015. MHPS supplied the steam turbines for both units, while the generators were produced by Mitsubishi Electric Corp (TYO:6503).

MHPS' scope under the new agreement covers supporting parts management and services at the Germencik plant, including the dispatch of engineers.
