In our country, in recent years, energy investments have gained importance and numerous dam and HEPP projects with high capacities have been put into progress. By considering these developments, our company has taken a step into the energy sector and started its first Project, Artvin Erenler Regulator and HEPP construction Works on 5th of May, 2008. The Project, taken over by one of the affiliates of our company Roper Yapı Industry Ltd., is in the capacity of 45 MW power supply and consists of diversion of the water by means of a regulater located on the Deviksel River in Artvin Borcka Balcilar Village. After leaving the regulator the water will be diverted into 3134 m long T1 tunnel, 40 m long cut & cover tunnel, 1794 m long T2 tunnel, 151 m long open channel, an aqueduct and then into the storage reservoir located in Asavur Hill through Coruh Valley. As the scope of the Project, constructions of penstock pipe 900 m in length and 1600 mm in diameter, power house with two unit vertical pelton turbine of 2*22,5 MW power, a switchsite and permanent service roads will all be completed. The Project is planned to be completed in 20 months which is 4 months earlier then its actual completion period.
