Turboden and Fervo Energy Establish Partnership to Propel Geothermal Energy Innovation

22 April 2024

Brescia, April 22nd - Turboden, a global leader in Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) systems, proudly announces a groundbreaking collaboration with Fervo Energy, a pioneer in enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). Together, they are poised to revolutionize 24/7 carbon-free energy production and spearhead the future of geothermal energy innovation.

Fervo Energy's Cape Station project represents a significant milestone, marking the company's largest commercial endeavor in the geothermal energy sector. Situated in southwest Utah, Cape Station is positioned to redefine geothermal energy production with an anticipated total project capacity of approximately 400 MW. This endeavor symbolizes a transformative leap towards carbon-free energy solutions.

Drawing upon Turboden's expertise in ORC technology, the company will provide the engineering and procurement of power plant equipment for the initial 90 MW phase of the Cape Station project. This includes the installation of three generators with six ORC turbines, ensuring optimal energy conversion from geothermal sources.

"We are excited to collaborate with Turboden on our Cape Station project," stated Tim Latimer, CEO and Co-Founder of Fervo Energy. "With this partnership, the ORC industry enters a new age of scale necessary to meet the skyrocketing demand for around-the-clock clean energy."

Paolo Bertuzzi, CEO and Managing Director of Turboden, echoed this sentiment, affirming, "Fervo Energy's commitment to advancing geothermal energy aligns seamlessly with Turboden's mission to drive sustainable energy innovation. Together, we are forging a path towards a cleaner, greener future. The success of this project, alongside other initiatives in North America, prompted Turboden to consider establishing a US-based office. This strategic move enables us to leverage the support of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, further enhancing our operations and presence in the region.”

The success of Cape Station will not only validate the efficacy of EGS technology but also unlock vast potential for future geothermal power projects across the United States. Turboden and Fervo Energy are steadfast in their dedication to leading the charge in accelerating the transition to renewable energy.
