Finnish consulting and engineering firm Pöyry has secured a contract from Kalehan Murat Enerji Üretim to carry out design engineering services for the Beyhan II Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP) project in Turkey.
Under the deal, Pöyry will prepare designs for the earth fill clay core dam and related structures focusing on risk analysis. These documents will help determine the investment decision.
Kalehan Murat Enerji Üretim CEO Keles said: “Kalehan Energy Group is happy to extend their existing fruitful co-operation with Pöyry in the Beyhan II project.”
Currently at the design stage, the project will be located on the Murat River near the village of Beyhan. Once construction is completed, the plant will have an installed capacity of 320MW and a power generation capacity of 710GWh each year.
Pöyry Energy Business Group president Richard Pinnock said: “Delivering clean, renewable energy projects in this region further strengthens Pöyry’s position as one of the world’s leading hydropower engineering consultancies.”
The value of the order has not yet been disclosed.
In July 2011, the energy business group of Pöyry received a detailed design services contract from Kalehan Enerji for the Beyhan I Dam and HPP project in Turkey.
The installed capacity of Beyhan I is 550MW and its annual power generation capacity is 1,245GWh.
