About Kumköy Hydro-Electrical Power Plant

Furthermore, Kumköy Hydro-Electrical Power Plant is located in Çarşamba district of Samsun. It utilizes the Yesilırmak basin to generate electricity through a Run-of-River type hydropower system. A Run-of-river type power plant uses the kinetic energy of the river to turn a turbine and generate electricity. The turbine is connected to a generator, which converts the mechanical energy into electrical energy. Additionally, the plant may have features like a power plant building, regulator structure, water intake canals, and tail-water structures.

Too, water is turbo-pumped from the Suat Uğurlu plant to power three bulb-type turbines with a combined capacity of 17.25 MW and a net head of 9.26 meters. Additionally, the plant features a power plant building, regulator structure, water intake canals, and tail-water structures. Moreover, it has a total flow rate of 210m³ per second.
