Once complete by the end of 2015, the projects will generate around 721 GWh of electricity annually, which is enough to power around 200,000 households.

EnBW CEO Frank Mastiaux said that the company’s commitment in Turkey is a key aspect of its corporate strategy and is based on its strategic assessment of the Turkish energy market, which takes into account the capacities and technologies needed, as well as renewable energy expansion.

“Abundant wind and the good, strong partnership with Borusan are the best preconditions for leveraging our opportunities here as well,” he said.
