AKKUYU NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, DESIGN OFFSHORE HYDROTECHNICAL STRUCTURES, TURKEY

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.

ZEYTINBURNU PORT PASSENGER TERMINAL

ZEYTINBURNU PORT PASSENGER TERMINAL

Zeytinburnu is located at central part of Istanbul on the European coast, close to international airport and touristic historical sites. Although the region is an attraction center for maritime transportation, a passenger terminal with adequate wharf capacity is not available in this section of İstanbul.

Based upon needs, survey, feasibility and planning studies were carried out; a coastal area of approximately 350.000 sqm was determined as the port area on Zeytinburnu coast. An area of 400.000 sqm was recovered from the sea by seafill for the additional facilities. Port is planned to provide for berthing of 6 passenger ships at the same time. 3 passenger ship quays were designed with lengths of 250, 300 and 400 meters. In addition to the passenger terminal, 2 marina basins with total boat a capacity of 1200 were planned. The coastal strip of approximately 1.000 meters, which connects the marinas to the cruise port is planned as a coast for visitors.

TRANSPORTATION COASTAL STRUCTURES MASTER PLAN

TRANSPORTATION COASTAL STRUCTURES MASTER PLAN

Master Plan Study of Transportation Coastal structures aims at evaluation of the current situation of vital points of maritime transportation, i.e. the ports, their problems and the expectations of stakeholders, estimation of general and regional local and foreign demands, fulfilling these demands at the location in a timely manner, and extension of maritime trade so as to provide maximum benefit to the country’s economy. Furthermore, it aims at determining the infrastructure of the coastal structures in terms of type, function, capacity and location, increasing employment in this sector and development of strategies and plans in order to add value to the economy of the country.

The results of this work, have been approved by Republic of Turkey, Ministry of Transportation, Maritime Affairs and Communication, and printed in September 2010, and opened to the use of stakeholders at the web site of General Directorate of Infrastructure Investments (https://www.aygm.gov.tr).
