TURKEY-CYPRUS WATER SUPPLY PROJECT


UNDERSEA CROSSING -SUSPENSION SYSTEM

The project, first of its kind in the world, will supply 75,000,000 m3 of drinking and irrigation water to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus annually.

Starting at Anamur, Mersin, Turkey, the project terminates at Geçitköy, TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) after crossing across the sea at a depth of 280 m as well as via a suspension system having an overall length of approximately  80 km with a Ø 1600 mm diameter HDPE pipeline.
