Leader of Owner's Engineer consortium for a 1,200 MW HPP and CFRD dam in Turkey
Description of project:
The Ilisu Dam and HEPP is a 1,200 MW power plant on the Tigris river, some 35 km north of Cizre, on the Turkish border shared by Syria and Irak. A 130 m high concrete-faced rockfill type (CFRD) dam with an embankment volume of 25 Mio. m³ creates a head of 120 m and a reservoir with 10 Bio. m³ live storage. The open air powerhouse harbours 6 Francis generating units of 200 MW capacity each. The spillway with 6 radial gates of 16 x 16 m has a discharge capacity of over 15,000 m³. The plant forms an important part of the proposed South East Anatolia Project (GAP). It is one of the world’s major hydro power plants.
ÅF is the leader of the Owner’s Engineers (ECS) consortium, consisting of 2 Swiss and 2 Turkish engineering companies: review and update final design; assist the owner (DSI) with the review of the contractor’s construction documents; site/erection supervision and commissioning.
