Turboden Fervo geothermalOrganic Rankine Cycle (ORC) systems provider Turboden has collaborated with enhanced geothermal systems company Fervo Energy on advancing the Cape Station project. 

With an anticipated total project capacity of approximately 400 MW, the project is Fervo's largest commercial endeavour in the geothermal industry. Situated in southwest Utah, the project will be a prime source for 24/7 carbon-free energy production. 

Turboden will provide the engineering and procurement of power plant equipment for the initial 90 MW phase of the project. This includes the installation of three generators with six ORC turbines.

Driving energy innovation

"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, said, "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.”
