Shortlists of ventures prequalified to submit feasibility bids for six major stations to be built on an emergency build-own-operate (BOO) basis were announced by the Energy & Natural Resources Ministry on 10 October. The plants are estimated to cost around $4,600 million.

In total, about 13 BOO projects including 10 fired by imported coal are key elements of a $24,000 million integrated construction programme being drafted by the ministry. The programme, which will continue up to and beyond 2020, is intended to avert energy deficits (MEED 18:10:96).

The six emergency plants, all gas-fuelled unless specified otherwise, are: Adapazari (700 MW); Gebze 1 (700 MW); Gebze 2 (700 MW); Ankara (700 MW); Izmir (1,400 MW); and Iskenderun (imported coal – 1,000 MW). The first two are due to be commissioned in 2000, the next two in 2001, Izmir in two stages between 2001 and 2005, and Iskenderun in 2003.

The ministry hopes to make selections by the end of December for each plant. Prequalified ventures, and their respective projects are:
