Power distributors split peacefully, says Limak
Vahap Munyar – ANKARAThree Turkish companies that have cooperated on several large projects in the last decade have peacefully parted ways in the power distribution business, Limak Holding Chairman Nihat Özdemir told daily Hürriyet on the sidelines of Oct. 29 Republic Day celebrations at the Presidential Palace in Ankara.
Commenting over the partition of the four power distribution business grid, which had been run by the partnership of Cengiz-Kolin-Limak, Özdemir said the separation was necessary but that there were no problems.
“There are no problems. We parted well. This partition was needed,” said Özdemir.
He said Limak Holding took one of the power distribution power grids that contains the provinces of Bursa, Balıkesir, Çanakkale and Yalova, while Cengiz-Kolin took the three other grids.
The three grids are Boğaziçi, covering Istanbul’s European side; Akdeniz, covering Antalya, Isparta and Burdur, and Çamlıbel, covering Sivas, Yozgat and Tokat.
Stating that a draw had determined which company would take which power distribution power grid, Özdemir said no significant payment was made during the separation and that an approximate balance was reached.
