BNP Paribas acted as joint-arranger, alongside ABN Amro, Société Générale, and WestLB, for a USD 1,641 million financing for three gas-fired combined-cycle power stations. The financing was arranged and syndicated to 18 banks.

The three power stations have a total generating capacity of 3,854MW, or roughly 16% of Turkey's current installed capacity. They will be 60% owned by Intergen and 40% by Enka.
