The primary turbine rotation course of as a part of moist checks for electrical energy technology on the Yusufeli Dam and Hydroelectric Energy Plant (HPP) in Türkiye’s Artvin province has been initiated, Türkiye’s Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Ibrahim Yumaklı introduced Saturday on his official social media account.
“We’ve began the primary turbine rotation course of as a part of moist checks for electrical energy technology on the Yusufeli Dam and HPP. Our engineers are meticulously monitoring the take a look at trials. The times after we will get hold of electrical energy from the world’s fifth tallest dam are approaching,” Yumaklı stated on X, previously referred to as Twitter.
In response to the assertion from the ministry, the Yusufeli Dam is Türkiye’s tallest dam with a top of 275 meters (902 toes) and ranks fifth in its class worldwide.
The ability has an put in capability of 558 megawatts and an annual common vitality manufacturing of 1.9 billion kilowatt-hours, which is anticipated to supply an extra worth of TL 6 billion ($222,280 million) per 12 months to the Turkish economic system.
The Yusufeli Dam additionally has the distinctive functionality to control the circulation regime of the Çoruh River to make sure the best effectivity of downstream dams.
Moreover, it’s anticipated to extend the manufacturing capacities of the Artvin, Deriner, Borçka and Muratlı dams situated downstream.
The commissioning of the Yusufeli Dam and HPP will improve Türkiye’s hydroelectric vitality manufacturing capability by 2%.
The vitality technology capability of Yusufeli Dam, which has a water storage capability of two.1 billion cubic meters (bcm), is at a stage that alone can meet the vitality wants of two.5 million residences or 750,000 Togg automobiles – Türkiye’s first home and absolutely electrical car.
The dam, which is equal to a 100-story skyscraper, is at the moment within the means of managed water retention.
As of Sept. 15, the water stage within the dam has reached 699.12 meters, the water top is 195.62 meters, and the saved water quantity is 1.697 bcm, in line with Anadolu Company (AA) stories.
For electrical energy technology, the dam has three models, with the primary turbine rotation course of efficiently accomplished for Unit 3.
Exams for Unit 1 and Unit 2 shall be performed within the upcoming interval.
