The $779m Denizli gas power plant in Turkey is set to start up in June, six months behind schedule.

The 775 MW combined cycle plant is owned by RWE and Turcas in a 70-30 joint venture.

It is expected to meet 2 per cent of total electricity production in Turkey and uses a Siemens SGT5–4000 F gas turbine, supplied in April 2011 within a design based on two lines incorporating a gas turbine, generators and a waste heat boiler.

RWE’s strategy behind the venture is to reinforce its position in south-east Europe, notably in the fast-growing Turkish market, according to Gas to Power Journal.
