RWE & Turcas South Power Generation
Denizli Natural Gas Fired Combined Cycle Power Plant
In 2009, Turcas signed a partnership agreement with the German RWE AG Group – one of the world’s biggest energy companies – to invest in a large-scale power plant. This agreement established the joint venture company RWE & Turcas South Power Generation.
Denizli Natural Gas Fired Combined Cycle Power Plant, with 800 MW installed capacity and a total investment cost of nearly EUR 600 million, started operations after obtaining acceptance from the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources on June 22, 2013. RWE & Turcas South Power Generation’s mission is to operate the natural gas combined cycle power plant, which bears the capacity to generate about 6 thousand gigawatt-hours of power annually. The paid-in capital of RWE & Turcas South Power Generation is TL 1,527,000,000. Thanks to its investment, Turcas Power Generation raised its natural gas-fired installed equity capacity to 240 MW in 2013. The power plant, operational for 3.5 years, has created value with its high availability. Boasting load ramp-up/ramp-down flexibility, the plant has fully met the load orders of the system operator TEİAŞ and provided support for network supply security.
The load flexibility and efficiency-enhancing capital investments have bolstered the facility’s competitiveness.
