Project description
The Ceyhan project includes Oþkan and Berkman diversion weirs and HEPPs which are run-of-river hydro electrical power plants with a total installed capacity of 63,468MWm/61,704 MWe. The Oþkan and Berkman diversion weirs of Ceyhan Project are located on Ceyhan River, in the city of Osmaniye, in South Anatolian Region, Turkey. The primary objective of the project is to generate electricity from hydropower station to meet the ever-increasing demand in South Anatolian Region and to contribute to the sustainability of electricity generation of the Turkish National Grid. Another benefit following the construction of the project is to utilize the 25m head between the Aslantaþ Dam at the upstream of Ceyhan River and the Cevdetiye Irrigation Structure at the downstream in two stages; by the Oþkan and Berkman HEPPs. Based on the Preliminary Design, the installed capacity of the proposed project is 63,468MWm/61,704 MWe , which yields an output of 259.29 GWh per year to the Turkish National Grid in long-term average. Thus, the project will lead to estimated annual emission reduction of approximately 159.463 tons of CO2e. The project activity is owned by Enova Enerji Üretim A.Þ. which is controlled by Nurol-Özaltýn, a prominent energy firm in Turkey and had achieved all the necessary licenses to implement the project. The purpose of the project activity is to generate electricity from renewable sources and sell it to the National Grid. Key Features of the project activity are; • Run-of-river hydro power project with no water storage. • Strong sustainable development aspects. • One of the large scale hydro projects implemented by the private sector in Turkey. The project activity’s contributions to sustainable development are; • Supply of reliable, zero emitting renewable energy to the Turkish National Grid. • Contribution to the balance of payments of Turkey by using national resources. • Contribution to social, educational and economic improvement of local people by implementing social responsibility projects. • Increase of local income and job opportunities. These social, economic and environmental benefits underscore the important sustainable benefits of this proposed project activity to the country and the region.
