DAM AND HEPP
Lower Kaleköy Dam and HEPP Project is located 2 km downstream of the confluence of Yiğitler (Vahkin) Stream and Murat River. It is located 15 km northeast of Genç District in Bingöl Province. The installed capacity of the facility to be constructed on the Murat River is 500.00 MWe, and it is planned that the facility will generate 1,193.17 GWh energy annually.
The composite body of the Lower Kaleköy Dam is
planned as an asphalt core embankment at the left
bank and RCC at the right bank. With this design feature, the Lower Kalekoy Project will be the first Asphalt Core Dam in Turkey, and it has 3,370,000 m³ fill volume and
1,900,000 m³ RCC volume. The width of the 945.00 m-long crest is 10.00 m and its height from the thalweg and the foundation are 95.00 m and 107.00 m respectively.
The powerhouse, which is designed independently from the dam body, is composed of 3 main and 1 small units
(3 x 155.49 MWe + 33.53 MWe) located on the right bank.
The 4-radial-gated spillway structure will be constructed on the right bank over the RCC dam body, and its discharge capacity will be 9,247 m³/s.
Moreover, with its 500.00 MWe installed capacity, Lower Kaleköy Dam and HEPP will be the 5ᵗʰ Largest HEPP by Installed Capacity in Turkey developed by the private sector.
