SGS wins Turkey power inspection contract
Turkey's Enerjisa chooses SGS for inspection of gas power plants
SGS has been commissioned by Turkey's Enerjisa to undertake performance testing of ancillary services at four gas-powered plants in Turkey. The company will test aspects of the plants to ensure compliance with Turkey's Grid Code, which was revised in 2008.
The four plants – which are natural gas combined-cycle power plants – are located in Adana, Mersin, Canakkale and Bandirma. SGS is the only approved provider of testing services in the country, and will provide regular testing in three-year intervals. Power plants in Turkey are required to evidence that they are capable of rendering any additional services adapted. SGS will be inspecting the sites to ensure that they can maintain operation of their interconnected transmission systems.
SGS recently announced that it was set to undertake a three-year inspection contract at the Al Anbar power project in Iraq. Under the contract, SGS will inspect material and equipment, and also provide quality control checks during construction. The site is scheduled for completion in three years, and is set to have a power output of 250 MW when fully operational.
