Kalehan Genç Enerji Üretim A.S. has awarded Pöyry the detailed design services assignment for the Lower Kaleköy Hydroelectric Power Plant and Dam in Turkey. The assignment includes the execution of the detail design for the civil engineering of the powerhouse, and structural reviews, including the roller-compacted concrete (RCC) dam, power intake and penstocks, piano-key weir spillway solution, diversion structures with two tunnels and bottom outlet.
The four projects at the Beyhan and Kaleköy cascade are being developed by the same private investors. The installed capacity of the Lower Kaleköy plant will be 500 MW with an annual generation of around 1200 GWh. The detail design will be executed jointly with the Consortium partner Temelsu up to end of 2017.
"We are proud to be working on this landmark project. Ranked in the global top 10 of power generation engineering companies, Pöyry has a proven track record of delivering sustainable hydropower solutions around the world and improving client's return on investments," says Ernst Zeller, Pöyry's Regional Director for the Energy Business Group, Austria.
