Evolution of Balcova Geothermal District Heating System Turkey

Balçova geothermal field is located in a densely populated area which makes direct heat applications very efficient and economical. Heat produced from Balçova geothermal field is utilized for three main purposes: greenhouse heating, balneology and residential heating. Among these three applications, the latter one is the main application throughout the Balçova Geothermal District Heating System (BGDHS). The field produces hot water from two different horizons: one shallow and one deeper zone. This paper presents the encountered problems and their solution strategies while expanding the system to the current state of 35,000 residence equivalent capacity (lresidence equivalent = 100 m2 heated area).
