  • Ana-Kent Planlama

In January, the UAE and Turkey has signed a USD 12bn intergovernmental agreement for the development of power plants and associated mines in the Afsin-Elbistan region. Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (Taqa) and Turkey's Electricity Generation Company Inc. were selected as the government-related entities responsible for the project, which is expected to generate a combined power capacity of up to 7,000MW. The two entities will form a joint venture, which will acquire, modernize and expand an existing 1,400MW plant and develop several new power plants and associated mines in the Afsin-Elbistan region.
