Afşin Elbistan B Thermal Power Plant

In August 1998, EUAŞ, the state owned company for electricity generation, awarded the turn-key construction of a conventional-type coal-fired thermal power plant, with a nominal capacity of 4×360 MW, to the consortium of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI), ENKA İnşaat ve Sanayi A.Ş., Babcock Kraftwerkstechnik GmbH and GTT.

The project included the construction and installation of four steam turbojets, the flue gas desulphurization plant, the slag and ash handling system, the raw water supply system, the water treatment plant, the coal handling system, the cooling system, all ancillary plants, generating plants with their auxiliaries, storage facilities and the necessary workshops, operation and auxiliary buildings as well as all low, medium and high voltage switchgears, control and monitoring equipment and the power transformers.

The complete implementation of design as well as tests, trial runs, acceptance tests and maintenance until the temporary acceptance date, the training of all operating personnel and the provision of all necessary consumables were also included in the project.
