Andritz has been selected by the Turkish water authority Devlet Su İşleri (DSI) to supply electro-mechanical equipment for the new 160 MW Silvan hydropower plant in Turkey. The plant, located on the Kulp Stream near Diyarbakir in Southeast Anatolia, will feature four 40MW turbines, four generators, associated equipment, and a 154 kV switchyard system.

The Silvan hydropower plant is expected to generate 681GWh of electricity annually, contributing significantly to Turkey’s energy supply and reducing carbon emissions.

“We are proud to be part of this important hydropower project and to contribute to the expansion of renewable power in Türkiye,” said Frank Mette, Managing Director of Andritz Hydropower Türkiye. “This project is in line with our mission to contribute to the global transition to sustainable energy generation.”

Andritz has a long history in Turkey, with nearly a century of operations and a company based in Izmir. The group has supplied or rehabilitated turbines and generators with a total capacity of about 16,000MW in the country. Hydropower accounts for 20.7% of Turkey’s total installed capacity.
