BOTAS will generate electricity from waste heat

Pipelines and Petrol Transport Inc. (BOTAS) has started tender works for electricity generation from waste flue gas heat in Sivas.

In the statement made by the company, it was stated that Sivas Compressor Station was determined as a pilot region within the framework of the “Communiqué on the Implementation of Energy Performance Contracts in the Public Service”.

In the statement, it was stated that tenders for electricity generation from waste flue gas heat have been started in Sivas, and that bids can be submitted until 11 November.

The statement noted:

“Compressor stations are facilities that are installed at regular intervals along natural gas pipelines. Within the scope of the project, it is planned to generate approximately 45 gigawatt-hours of electrical energy at full capacity annually by establishing an ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) system from the heat released from the waste flue gas of the four gas pressurization turbines at Sivas Compressor Station.

At the same time, with this project, which will reduce the amount of waste heat released to the environment by 95%, besides meeting the entire annual electricity need of Sivas Compressor Station, it is aimed to meet approximately 20% of the total annual electrical energy needed in other facilities of BOTAS and to contribute to the total installed power of the country in electricity generation.
