New project in Turkey

25 January 2021

Skoda Power, based in Pilsen in the Czech Republic, turned to Jeumont Electric to supply an alternator for Turkey’s ETI Maden, the world’s leading supplier of boron used in agricultural fertilizers.

The new alternator will be coupled to a steam turbine via a steam boiler and will provide electricity primarily for a 350,000-ton-per-year sulfuric acid production plant near Emet in Turkey’s Kütahya Province.

The new equipment will be built near the existing boric acid plant and will have the necessary auxiliary equipment, including a distilled water treatment plant, waste treatment facilities, a natural gas system, and emergency sprinklers. The steam generated by the acid process will be used to produce electricity.

This new facility will be one of Turkey’s largest sulfuric acid plants.
