Turkey offers operating rights for 115 MW Akköprü hydro plant

The Privatization Administration of Turkey, through its financial advisor the Development Investment Bank of Turkey (TKYB), has invited bids by 30 May to acquire operational rights for the 115 MW Akköprü hydroelectric power plant for a period of 49 years.

The privatization process for the Akköprü dam and hydropower plant will be executed through the “Grant of Operating Rights” method, with related fixed assets associated with the power plant also up for privatization through either the “Grant of Operating Rights” or “Transfer of Usage Permit” method. Located on the Dalaman Stream in the Köycegiz district of the southwestern province of Muğla, the facility has been operating since February 2012.

It has a total installed power of 115 MW with two 57.5 MW vertical axis Francis turbines supplied by Voith and generators by Siemens. Between 2013 and 2023, it generated 176 GWh of gross electricity on average per annum based on an average annual water flow of 28 m3/s with a capacity factor of 17 per cent. The plant had an average availability of 96 per cent over the ten-year period. The Akköprü Dam, a clay core rockfill embankment dam built between 1995 and 2009, also provides for flood protection.

The fee for the information memorandum, virtual data room (USB memory stick) and tender specifications is Turkish Lira 75 000. More information and contact details can be found at:
