We have successfully completed the most important stages of Gardabani Natural Gas Combined Cycle Power Plant Project that we started to construct on October 2013 and committed to deliver on November 2015. It is the first turnkey combined cycle power plant project that Çalık Enerji works as EPC contractor.
First, the power plant operated in combined cycle mode for 72 hours and Reliability Run Test was completed without a problem on 25.06.2015. Then, after completing Performance Tests that started on 01.07.2015 and was successfully completed on 02.07.2015, we finalized Temporary Acceptance process.
Chairman of Board of Directors Mr. Ahmet Çalık and General Manager Mr. Osman Saim Dinç paid a visit to the project site on 03.07.2015, gathered information regarding the project, expressed their pleasure for the progress of the project and congratulated the project team for exerting efforts for the construction works. They also stated that this project that will reach a success would be a substantial reference for the future jobs and project and it will widen our horizon.
The Power plant is planned to be officially launched in the middle of July. With the ever-increasing impetus since the beginning of the project, we are already ahead of the work program and we are about to finish the project. I would like to thank the project team that exerted efforts, other branches of our company that always supported us and our distinguished manager. I wish this project that is about to finish with success will bring prosperity for our company. Özgür SARIKAYA
