The Hydro Electric Power Plant (HEPP) was developed by Yeşilbas Elektrik Üretim and it is a grid-connected small scale hydropower plant with a run-of-river reservoir in Sivas province, Turkey. The total installed capacity of the project is 14 MW. It has three 4.666 MW turbines, with a predicted electricity supply to the grid of 56.16 GWh per year. The project is composed of a regulator, conveyance channel, headpool and a powerhouse. The regulator consists of water inlet structure, sediment pool, hard-filled weir and gravel passage. Water will be diverted at the regulator from 1,431 meters of altitude via the conveyance channel of 8,000 meters and channelled into the headpool at 1,426 meters. Through penstocks of 840 meters total, the water will be carried to the powerhouse where two vertical Francis turbines lie.
