The Kırıkkale Power Plant will provide a steady and reliable energy to Turkey’s national grid. The project is also among the top three most efficient combined cycle gas power plants in Turkey, significantly contributing to the country’s economy through savings in gas consumption.

The combined cycle power plant has a capacity of 1,000MW and is capable of meeting three per cent of the total electricity demand in Turkey.

The plant is the first and largest of Saudi Arabia’s energy investments in Turkey’s power sector.

ACWA Power chairman Mohammad Abunayyan said, “The inauguration of this project is a clear sign of the growth and modernisation in Turkey, which is making the country set for continued development. We applaud the Turkish authorities on delivering a key infrastructure project to drive the economy forward for future generations.”

Abid Hussain Malik, managing director of ACWA Power in Turkey, added, “Kirikkale project holds immense value to the Turkish community and its efficiency and design is testament to ACWA Power’s expertise in projects that provide reliable delivery of power and water at the lowest possible cost. The team has worked hard to meet the highest quality standards and utilize best practices. We are delighted to have played a vital role in bolstering the Turkish economy and are confident of a bright future ahead.”
