Gümüsköy Geothermal Hybrid

Project Facts:
Location: Turkey
SkyTrough® SCAs: 1
Total Aperture Area: 328 m2
Design-Point Energy Output: 0.24 MWth
Project EPC: TYT / BM Holdings

A single SkyTrough solar collector has been integrated with the Gümüşköy CSP / Geothermal 13.3MWe hybrid facility, which runs two TAS Energy, Inc. power generation units. The SkyTrough solar thermal collector improves the operating efficiency of the TAS units by increasing the thermal energy input. The Gümüşköy Integrated Solar Geothermal (ISG) hybrid system began full operation in 2014.

TYT designed and installed the project. SkyTrough components were manufactured globally to meet SkyFuel’s design specifications and high-quality standards. Essential components for the collector was manufactured by SkyFuel in Denver, Colorado, USA.
