Enercon and Enerjisa Uretim to install 1 GW of wind power capacity in Turkey

Enercon and Enerjisa Uretim, a joint venture between E.ON and Sabanci Holding, have agreed to install 1 GW of wind energy capacity at Turkey’s YEKA RES II project. Enercon, a German producer of wind turbines, will provide the project with wind energy converter (WEC) technology by delivering 240 of its E-138 EP3 E2 WECs over the next four years. With a combined capacity of 250 MW, the wind farms will be built in Çanakkale, Balıkesir, Aydın and Muğla.

Enercon and Enerjisa Üretim secured 1 GW of capacity in the YEKA RES II tender held in 2019, with each company receiving a share of 500 MW. One of Turkey’s largest renewable energy projects, the YEKA – Renewable Energy Resource Areas initiative is reported to have a total capacity of more than 2.8 GW. The project will help in the country’s efforts to address the global climate crisis by developing domestic production in renewable energy technology and increasing the amount of clean energy sources in its electricity generation portfolio.

In August 2022, Renewable Energy Systems (RES) sold its Işklar Wind Energy project in Türkiye (Turkey) to Dost Enerji for nearly €50 million. The 50 MW wind farm, which is situated in Gediz, Kutahya Province, has nine wind turbines and is scheduled to be online in 2024. The project was filed by RES for consideration in the 2017 Turkish Electricity Transmission Corporation (TEA) wind capacity tenders.
