Journal Article: Denizli-Kizildere Geothermal Power-Plant, Turkey

The first geothermal power-plant in Turkey, the Kizildere 20 MW geothermal power-plant, is being constructed near Denizli-Saraykoy by GIE, Italy. Start-up operations have already begun and it will be generating electricity by the beginning of 1984. The plant will supply part of the power demands of Southwestern Anatolia, especially in the city of Denizli. This power-plant will utilize the geothermal resources discovered by the MTA (Mineral Research Exploration Institute) near Kizildere-Saraykoy at the end of research conducted between 1968 and 1971. MTA has been conducting this research all over Turkey and recently a new geothermal system has been found in Germencik-Aydin. In Kizildere there are 16 wells drilled by MTA. However six of them (KD 13, KD 15, KD 16, KD 6 and KD 7, KD 14, three as stand-by) will be utilized for electricity generation.
