CK Energy

Transforming distribution and retail services in Turkey with a fully integrated IT/OT solution

Business impact summary

Several independent electric utility companies were formed following the privatization of Turkey’s generation and distribution sectors in 2013. One of those new companies, CK Energy, was determined to transform electric power distribution and retail services in its markets. 


The company

CK Energy was established following the privatization of Turkey’s electric power sector to provide both power distribution and retail services. CK is an association of the Cengiz, Limak and Kolin groups, the leading electric power utility companies in Turkey. It is the largest electric utility in Turkey, distributing 46 billion kWh annually through its operations in four regions that encompass 11 cities and over 10 million customers. 


The challenge

The privatization had provided a clean slate, and CK set its sights on creating a more efficient, more effective system based on the latest and most innovative technology and supported by a first-of-its-kind, fully-integrated IT/OT operating structure. CK’s managers immediately launched a far-reaching effort to completely transform the way they did business. With more than 10 million customers served by its four retail companies and four distribution system operators, their grand goal was to unify all business processes and technical solutions, and enable CK to become more competitive in the very near future. 


The solution

The procurement process included exploration and proof of concept demonstrations of key technologies needed to successfully merge information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT). CK did an extensive evaluation of the technical solutions available.

Based on ABB’s unique, demonstrated ability to integrate the IT/OT infrastructure for all elements of CK’s transformation efforts, they selected several of ABB’s products to create a fully-integrated solution, including: Outage Lifecycle Management; SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system; ADMS (Advanced Distribution Management System); Service Suite (mobile workforce management), and Substation Automation with relays, remote terminal units, and other communication infrastructure devices

The result

Enhanced outage restoration capabilities
From CK’s perspective, one of the most important outcomes of the transformation was the ability to better manage outages. ABB's solution automated CK’s end-to-end outage management processes, from the control center to field crews and equipment. That enabled CK to more quickly locate, isolate and restore outages – a benefit they are already seeing.

"With the network data we are now collecting, we will be able to make much better capital spending decisions that are focused on replacing the most troublesome elements of our network."

"Integrating IT and OT is something almost all distribution companies are trying to do, but with ABB’s help, we are achieving that goal and are now able to manage our diverse operations from a central location."


– Serhan Ozhan, CK Energy
