Turkey - Beyhan-1
The Beyhan-1 Dam and hydropower plant (3 x 186 MW and 1 x 25 MW) was successfully handed over to the customer Kalehan Beyhan Enerji Üretim A.S.
By mid-April 2015, the last of the three 186 MW main units could be handed over, almost two months before the contractual agreed date, so the customer was able to operate all main units already during the wet season (January to May).
HPP Beyhan-1 is the first of four planned hydropower plants on the river Murat in eastern Turkey. With an installed capacity of 600 MW, HPP Beyhan-1 is a cornerstone of the energy supply in this important Turkish region.
In 2012, ANDRITZ HYDRO, as leader of a consortium, received from Kalehan Enerji Üretim A.S. the contract for delivery and installation of the electro-mechanical equipment (see Hydro News 22). The three 186 MW Francis turbines, produced and supplied from ANDRITZ HYDRO, are among the largest of their kind ever installed in Turkey.
From mid-2015 a further 1,250 GWh per year of renewable energy will be supplied to the Turkish grid.
