SIEMENS AND KALYON WIN TENDER FOR WIND POWER PLANT PROJECT

The tender-bid for the second Renewable Energy Resources Areas (YEKA) project has been won by Germany's Siemens with Türkerler-Kalyon. They have offered $3.48 per kilowatt hours.

Germany's Siemens with Türkerler-Kalyon have won the tender-bid for the second Renewable Energy Resources Areas (YEKA) project, by offering $3.48 per kilowatt hours (kWh).

Bids for the second project were received last week and the world's largest wind turbine producers competed for the establishment of a 1,000-megawatt (MW) wind power plant. The tender on the wind power plant, the second project in the scope of the YEKA strategy, was held at the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry headquarters Thursday.



Wind turbines will be built in five different regions of Turkey, including Kayseri-Niğde, Sivas, Edirne-Kırklareli-Tekirdağ, Ankara-Çankırı-Kırıkkale and Bilecik-Kütahya-Eskişehir. The winners will activate a total installed capacity of 1,000 MWs, provided that it installs wind power of at least 50 MWs in each of these five regions.

The winning consortium will invest over $1 billion in wind facilities. With the introduction of domestic wind power plants, a minimum of 3 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity will be generated each year and the electricity requirements for approximately 1.1 million houses will be met annually. Thanks to the wind facilities to be installed, an average of 1.5 million tons of CO2 emissions will be reduced.
