Turkey seeks hydropower project efficiency studies

Turkey’s energy ministry invites expressions of interest from consultants to assess energy efficiency of hydropower generating facilities in Turkey. Responses are due July 22.

The Turkish government recently allocated US$16 billion to develop its hydropower sector through 2018 under its 10th Development Plan. Turkey’s potential hydropower generation is estimated at about 433 terawatt-hours a year, of which about 140 TWh a year is thought to be economically viable. Turkey last year requested an Official Development Assistance loan from Japan for a 1,400-MW pumped-storage project at Gokcekaya Dam in Eskisehir Province.

The Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources now invites expressions of interest from consultants to perform on-site assessment of energy efficiency of hydropower generation facilities in Turkey by collecting data and evaluating it on a performance measurement basis. The work is expected to require 10 months.

Expressions of interest are due by July 22 by delivery, mail or e-mail to the address below. Submissions are to be labeled “Consulting Services for Pilot Project for Analysis of the Hydropower Generation Facilities EU IPA13/CS-01.a.”
