Speaking at a meeting on "Turkey-Eurasia Foreign Trade Bridge" in Istanbul, Guler indicated that, out of the 1,600 projects, 980 have been already assigned to companies. "The electricity to be produced from hydraulic sources is around 15,000-16,000 megawatt," Guler told.

"We intend to manufacture turbines for the rivers. Once we succeed to manufacture the turbines, a market of 20 billion USD would be created," Guler stressed.

Guler added that certain plants may also be utilized to produce biodiesel.
