Darica Hydro Power Plant Project

The Power plant will be constructed on the Melet River in the Mesudiye district, Ordu Province, Turkey. The objective of the Project activity is to supply about 99 MW of renewable electricity to the rapidly growing Turkish electricity market.

The Project is expected to generate about 327,690 MWh of electricity annually and to reduce 209,722 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. Daica project will also help in reducing the poverty in the area and contribute to the sustainable development goals.
