AKKUYU NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, DESIGN OFFSHORE HYDROTECHNICAL STRUCTURES, TURKEY

Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant, which will be the first in Turkey when completed by 2020, will produce 1200 MW power by each of its four units which correspond almost to 10% in Turkey. The cooling water of these units, approx 330 m³/s, will be provided from sea and discharged back afterwards by hydraulic structures.

Structures designed are as follows:

  • Breakwater and Shore Protection Structure
  • Water Intake Structure and Fish Barrier
  • Sea Water Treatment Plant
  • Cooling Water Distribution Chamber
  • Sea Outfall Structure
  • East Cargo Terminal.

Detailed wave studies, hydrodynamic, lithodynamic, hydrothermal and tsunami modelling, 2D and 3D physical models of the structures and their performance tests in laboratuary are in scope of design studies.
