Pre-Feasibility Study for Hatay Combined Cycle Power Plant, Turkey

Akenerji Elektrik A. Ş. planned to install a natural gas fired combined cycle power plant with the capacity in the order of 900 MW at the North-East shore of the Bay of Iskenderun close to the village of Aşağiburnaz in Turkey.

The site located in the Hatay region stretches along the coast of the Bay of Iskenderun. The site contains a few sand dunes and water streams, otherwise it is fairly flat. Due to the proximity to the sea a ‘once through cooling system’ for the CCPP utilising sea water is a likely cooling concept. The shallowness at this end of the Bay of Iskenderun requires thorough investigation and planning. 

The CCPP concept would either be based on single or dual shaft arrangement. The technology of the GTG units will be ‘F’-class. The main plant components will be:

  • Two gas fired GTG units, no back-up fuel
  • Two HRSG units, triple pressure and reheat
  • One or two steam turbine units, condensing type, reheat
  • Once through cooling system with sea water
  • One gas receiving/conditioning station
  • One HV switchyard located on the site
  • One sea water desalination and demineralisation plant
  • One turbine hall, one administration/control building and all required infrastructure

The emission limits considered are to the EU standards.
