GAMA Enerji has successfully completed the construction phase of the 10-MW Karadağ Wind Power Plant; obtained provisional acceptance from the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources on June 4, 2012, and the plant has started to generate electricity.
Four 2.5 MW GE 2.5×100 turbines, which are regarded to be the most advanced in GE’s fleet in terms of efficiency, reliability and grid connection capabilities, are in operation at the site.
GAMA Enerji is the investor and the operator of both the 10-MW Karadağ Wind Power Plant (Aliağa, İzmir) and also the 22.5-MW Sares Wind Power Plant (Ezine, Çanakkale), which commenced commercial operations in 2011.
GAMA Enerji estimates that the two wind farms will generate enough electricity to power 59,000 Turkish homes and avoid 80,000 tons a year in greenhouse gas emissions. By focusing on a diverse production portfolio and renewable energy investments, GAMA Enerji aims to become an investor in all the areas of electricity generation and increase its total capacity to 2,500 MW.
