European giant of renewable energy, Statkraft, has announced it is building a massive 517MW hydropower plant in Turkey.

The Cetin hydroplant will be Statkraft’s largest outside of Norway and will have an average annual production of 1.4 TWh, equivalent to 460,000 homes.

Estimated to cost around €500 million, the project will make up two dams and two power stations. The civil works will be conducted by a Joint Venture between the two Turkish constructors Yuksel and Ilci. The Austrian company Andritz Hydro is nominated as contractor for electro-mechanical equipment.
