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.”
