Turkey plans further capacity

Turkey has signed the construction contract for the Afsin-Elbistan B power plant and is now planning to construct a third plant on the same site. The Afsin-Elbistan C project has been approved by the High Planning Board but is awaiting authorization from the cabinet of ministers.

Afsin-Elbistan C will be built near the 1440 MW Afsin-Elbistan B plant, and will be of the same design.

TEAS has stated that two more plants of this design could be built at the site in east Turkey.
