The plant, which will use a highly-efficient General Electric combined-cycle system, comprising gas and steam turbines, generators and heat-recovery steam generators and controls, will have the capacity to provide 50 per cent of the electricity in Ankara.

The project represents one of the largest investments in Turkey in recent years and is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.

 Mott MacDonald will review and verify the power plant’s design, carry out factory inspections and monitor construction on site.
