RWE and its Turkish joint-venture partner Turcas have signed the construction agreement for a planned 775MW combined cycle gas-turbine plant in Denizli in the west of Turkey.
Greek company Metka will be responsible for constructing the plant, and major components, including gas and steam turbines, will be supplied by Siemens.
Construction is set to start in 2010 and the power plant should be commissioned at the end of 2012.
‘The combined cycle gas-turbine plant with an efficiency rate of more than 55 per cent will make a decisive contribution towards securing supply in Turkey,’ said RWE’s chief strategic officer Leonhard Birnbaum.
‘The Turkish market is attractive and we wish to carry out a few more projects in order to participate in the growth opportunities the country offers.’
RWE, which holds a 70 per cent share in the joint venture, anticipates making a final investment decision in the first quarter of 2010, once building permission has been granted.
