TURKEY: Berke dam completion goes to tender

23 August 1996

International bids have been invited for phase three civil engineering works on the Berke dam and hydroelectric power plant project. The client, Cukurova Elektrik (CEAS), has set a 1 October closing date for the works including drilling and grouting for the 510-MW plant on the Ceyhan river, in the southeast. The estimated cost of the works is $54 million (see Tenders).

One-third of the main civils portion had already been carried out by Italy's Italstrade, but the company withdrew from the project in 1994 claiming non-payment of $36 million by CEAS (MEED 11:11:94; 16:9:94).
