Project Detail

Project is located around Çukurçayır village of Araklı district within Trabzon city which is inside Eastern Black Sea Basin. Araklı-1.1 tail water pipeline is conveyed to headpond by a buried corrugated polyethylene pipeline.

Headpond was constructed underground taking into consideration of access problems and operation easiness. 900 mm diameter 1400 m length penstock was installed without any horizontal bend under ground.

There exists only one vertical six jet Pelton turbine manufactured by Koessler inside power house where total installed power is 10.50 MW. Powerhouse dimensions were minimized by selecting only one unit.

Araklı-1.2 project is a good sample where topographic conditions are very hard and design is fully compatible with natural scene.
