THE NUMBER ONE ELECTRICITY GENERATOR (IPP) IN TURKEY
Established in 1997 as a 40-60% partnership between ENKA and InterGen, respectively, InterGen-ENKA was awarded the turnkey construction and operation of the Gebze, Adapazarı and İzmir natural gas combined cycle power plants, with a total installed capacity of 3,854 MW, by the General Directorate of TEAŞ and the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources in accordance with the Build-Own-Operate model.
The turnkey construction of the power plants was carried out by Bechtel-ENKA Joint Venture, with ENKA possessing a 50% share. Of these projects launched in 2000, the Gebze and Adapazarı plants were commissioned in 2002 and the İzmir plant in 2003. Together with its partner, InterGen, ENKA has become the largest electricity producer in Turkey’s private sector since the plants began to operate.
ADAPAZARI NATURAL GAS FIRED CCPP
Since their inception, the three power plants have generated more than 325 billion kWh power
GEBZE NATURAL GAS FIRED CCPP
ENKA is the sole owner of the Gebze, Adapazarı and İzmir Natural Gas Fired CCPPs since December 2005
İZMİR NATURAL GAS FIRED CCPP
The entire financing of investment, amounting to 2.2 billion USD, was secured by the InterGen-ENKA partnership
It is worth to note that the environmental impact assessment report, completed in accordance with the protocols outlined by the Ministry of Environment, has received official approval from the Ministry. In addition, another environmental impact assessment report for these plants was prepared for the exclusive review of the export credit agencies in accordance with the World Bank’s environmental guidelines and duly approved as it indicated minimal impact levels. Similar to today’s prevalent technology employed at natural gas combined cycle power plants around the world, Adapazarı, Gebze and İzmir plants operate below the minimum criteria established regarding air quality protection, water pollution and noise control regulations, and they are an exemplary array of investments in the energy sector in Turkey.
Through the use of advanced technology employed in the plants, as well as the low financing costs, the electricity sales price, which consists of four components, namely investment costs, fuel costs, fixed operating costs, and variable operating costs, is set at a level which makes it the cheapest electricity sold to public authorities by a private producer.
With the acquisition of InterGen’s shares, ENKA increased its shares to become the sole owner of the electricity generation companies.
ENKA power plants have generated over 400 billion kWh of electricity in Turkey during their 14-year commercial operation period. With their collective annual generation capacity of 32 billion kWh, the plants are capable of meeting 12% of Turkey’s total energy consumption.
