Russian energy systems manufacturer OJSC Power Machines is to build hydroelectric power plants in Turkey with a generation capacity of nearly 940 MW.

OJSC has concluded a pre-agreement with Turkey’s State Waterworks Authority to build four hydroelectric power plants and is negotiating also to build the technical infrastructure for the projects, which would add around $1 billion of investment.

The Russian firm intends to build a 180 MW plant at the Yusufeli dam in the northeastern province of Artvin, a 600 MW plant at the Gerze dam in the northern province of Sinop, a 90 MW facility at the Kavaktepe dam in the southeastern province of Kahramanmaras and a 70 MW hydro plant at the Incir dam in the southeastern province of Siirt.
