In terms of installed power, it is the smallest hydro-electric power plant operated by Akenerji. This facility of the total power of 7 MW is located in a mountainous area in the south-eastern part of Turkey near the City of Adiyman.
Sufficient quantity of water is supplied from a weir-type dam to a machine room with two Francis turbines by means of a canal followed by a power tunnel and terminated with a penstock. The construction project of the Bulam Power Plant with the total cost of almost USD 25 million was started in January 2008 and finished by starting commercial operation on 9 August 2010.
The Burcbendi Power Plant is located in south-eastern Turkey. Here, electricity is produced in an environmentally-friendly manner by three Kaplan turbines. The total costs of construction were approx. USD 65 million. The power plant dam is of a gravity type, constructed of rolled concrete. Water is supplied to the machine room through a power tunnel followed by a surge tank and a penstock.
Construction was started in January 2008 and commercial operation was started on 3 November 2010.
The Feke I Hydro Electric Power Plant is located in south-eastern Turkey. The environmentally-friendly electricity production plant of installed power 29 MW was commissioned in June 2012. In comparison with the Himmetli power plant located nearby, the construction of which was without any greater technical problems, the implementation of the construction part of the Feke I power plant project was very complicated technically. The general geological conditions and landslides in the steep river valley complicated the construction of the power plant machine room considerably so that it had to be relocated to another place in the locality. Compared to the other Akenerji power plants in this region, Feke I has the longest water supply tunnel to the machine room of approx. 7.5 km in length.
Similarly as the “sister” Feke I, the Feke II Power Plant is located in the south-eastern part of Turkey. It is the last one of a cascade of four Akenerji hydro-electric power plants on the Goksu River. The construction project of this power plant with the total cost of USD 115 million was started in May 2008 and finished by starting commercial operation in December 2010.
A couple of Francis turbines of the total power of 70 MW generate environmentally-friendly electricity in the power plant machine room. The power plant dam is of a gravity type, being constructed of rolled concrete. With the active capacity of the dam reservoir being 28 million of cubic metres, the Feke II power plant is the second greatest of the Akenerji power plants next to Uluabat.
The Gokkaya Hydro Electric Power Plant is located in the south-eastern part of Turkey. It has an installed power of 29 MW and is equipped with Francis turbines. Contrary to the Feke I and Himmetli power plants with weir-type dams allowing minimum water impound only, the dam of the Gokkaya power plant is 69 m high. The power plant dam is of a gravity type, being constructed of rolled concrete.
The Himmetli Hydro Electric Power Plant is located in a mountainous landscape of south-eastern Turkey approx. 150 km from the City of Adana. This environmentally-friendly energy production plant was commissioned for commercial operation on 12 May 2012.
The power plant machine room is equipped with two Francis turbines providing an installed power of 27 MW. The construction project included installation of a 154 kV transmission line 15 km long to supply power.
The Uluabat Hydro Electric Power Plant with its installed power of 100 MW is located in the western part of Turkey near the Sea of Marmara coast. Its two Francis turbines of 50 MW each are driven by water supplied from the reservoir with a tunnel. With its length of almost 11 km the tunnel is the longest one in Turkey, and no auxiliary access tunnels were used for its construction. It was just in connection with the driving of this supply tunnel that the local building contractor had to cope with the greatest obstacles. These were especially caused by the variations in the geological conditions of the bedrock through which the tunnel was driven.
The construction of the Uluabat power plant was started as early as in 2005 as an investment of more than USD 149 million. It was the fourth new hydro-electric power plant commissioned by Akenerji in 2010.
