Sares wind farm consists of nine wind turbines manufactured by GE with an installed capacity of 22.5MW and is located in Çanekkale province in the north west of Turkey. Power generated by the project will be fed into the Turkish national grid, which is dominated by fossil fuel fired power plants. Construction of the wind farm started in 2010 and the project was fully operational in March 2011.
How does the project contribute to carbon reduction?
The project activity achieves greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions by displacing electricity from fossil fuel based power plants connected to the grid. The project reduces over 50 thousand tons of CO2 per year.
The Project is developed by Garet Enerji Üretim ve ticaret A.Ş., a subsidiary of GAMA Enerji A.Ş. who develops and invests in power and water infrastructure projects in Turkey and the surrounding region.
