The first feasibility study was done by Electric Power Development Co in 1978 with funding from JICA. Detailed design work was undertaken in 1985/86 and the project was finally taken up on a BOT basis as an equal-part JV of Dogus Holdings, UNIT, and Dogan Enerji. The project features a 195m high, 262m long concrete gravity dam, a 60km reservoir, and athe power house. An environmental impact assessment report was prepared in accordance with World Bank and IFC guidelines and completed in 1998. A second was submitted to the Ministry of Environment and approved in 1997. The environmental reports were prepared by consultants from Harza and ENCON. After considerable delay, Boyabat was licensed in Nov 2007, construction got underway in Apr 2008 and the project completed in Dec 2012. The final cost was some $1.2bn, about twice the original estimate.
