Turkey - Cileklitepe

IC Içtas Enerji awarded a contract for the supply of electromechanical equipment for the Cileklitepe hydropower plant in Turkey to a consortium of ANDRITZ HYDRO France and Turkey, following the development of HPP Girlekik Mercan (13 MW) in 2007 and HPP Yukari Mercan (15 MW) in 2003.

HPP Cileklitepe is located in the province of Espiye, about 40 km south of the town of Ericek, in the eastern Black Sea region of Turkey. To produce energy from 2 x 12.4 MW vertical four jets Pelton turbines, the hydropower plant will use the water of the Kavaduva River. The waterway consists of a 3.2 km canal, a 2.3 km tunnel of 3 m in diameter and it ends in a 1,000 m long penstock of 1.25 m in diameter. With this contract IC Içtas Enerji, one of the major Turkish hydropower companies, confirms its confidence in ANDRITZ HYDRO’s efficient and reliable equipment.
