Ziyaret wind power in Turkey
Situated near Antakya in the Hatay region of Turkey, this project makes use of Turkey’s wind supply – one of the best in Europe – to generate 193,000MWh of clean, renewable electricity annually from 23 wind turbines. The electricity is fed into the Turkish grid, helping the country to increase its power generation from renewable sources, and reduce its reliance on fossil fuels. The project saves more than 150,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually and helps to avoid the harmful pollutants associated with coal-fired power plants. It also creates local employment opportunities in constructing and operating wind turbines, and encourages entrepreneurs to invest in similar renewable energy projects.
