Project Description

The project consists of 14 x 3 MW and 6 x 3.45 MW wind turbines with a total capacity of 62.7 MW plus development of a high voltage transmission line between the project and the national grid

The project is approximately 4 km away from the Özlük Village, the nearest village, in an area that is not favourable for agricultural use

The exported electricity, approximately 208 GWh per year, is delivered to the Turkish national grid which has an emissions intensity of 0.5596 tCO2e/ MWh

Sustainability Beyond Carbon

Electricity generated by the project would otherwise have been supplied by thermal fossil fuel power stations, improving air quality and reducing reliance on fossil fuels

The project created local employment during both the construction and operational phases

It has also made a contribution to the local and regional economy since most of the equipment and subcontractors were procured locally

The project owner has also contributed to educational quality of the villages nearby by investing in primary schools in six nearby villages

The project has had an insignificant impact on biodiversity with no endangered or protected species in the project’s impact area
