CATALOLUK HEPP

The Cataloluk Regulator and Hydroelectric Power Plant is a run-off-river type project located on Tekir Creek at about 55 km north of Kahramanmaras Province and 40 km south of Göksun District.

Proposed project consists of a hard-fill weir located at 823.5m altitude and 17m height from the thalweg level whereas the powerhouse will be located at about 724.5 m altitude. The installed capacity of the plant is designed as 9.54MW which will generate a total of annual output of 31.99 GWh. As a result of the project optimization, the maximum amount of 10 m3/s water usage in the turbines is thought to be economical. In return for annual energy generation, an annual carbon reduction of 17,499 tCO2 is expected according to the 2006-2008 Turkish Statistics of Electricity.
