In order to take additional measures, in case of repetition of the draught, which has been experienced during the summer months, ISKI has thought about utilization of dead volumes and this project has primarily been implemented in the Ömerli Dam.

The project is composed of building of a floating pumping station, installation of 3 parallel FCS pipes, connecting the FCS pipes to the pumping station and to pump in water up to the level of water intake covers.

Produced for the first time by Fırat, FCS-FIRAT Composite Pipe System pipes are used in the project.

BThe inner diameter of the pipe is 1200 mm, and the pressure class is 10 bar. Preferred due to its advantages, comparing with alternative pipe systems and mounted with concrete weights on the lake surface by jointing with butt-welding method, 3 pipe lines of 1.250 m is lowered simultaneously on the lake ground with S submergence method.
