Yamula Dam & HEPP

Yamula Dam & HEPP

Yamula Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant, located 30 km northwest of Kayseri, on the River Halys (Kizilirmak), is one of the most important Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) type power and irrigation projects in Turkey.

 

The Yamula Dam is located on the river Halys (Kizilirmak) in Kayseri in the Central Anatolia region. The site, including irrigation areas, is located 25 km northeast of city of Kayseri within the vicinity of the village of Yemliha at 35º 06´ - 35 º 09´east longitudes and 38º 24´ - 39º 06´ north latitude. This project was executed by one of our subsidiaries, Kayseri Elektrik Uretim San. ve Tic. A.S..
