Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) -- General Electric Co.’s energy unit will build two gas-fired power plants for 1.1 billion euros ($1.5 billion) for Turkey’s MetCap Energy Investments, Kerem Metin, chief executive of MetCap, said.

A 1,080-megawatts plant named Dervish will be constructed in Karaman in central Turkey to start operations in 2016 and a 878-megawatts plant, Eurostar, in Babaeski, to the west of Istanbul by 2014, Metin said in an interview in Istanbul today.

GE has a 10 percent stake in the Dervish plant which will use its turbines with FlexEfficiency technology, Metin said. GE-Gama, a joint-venture between GE and Turkish builder and energy group Gama will carry out the engineering work and construction, he added.
