Project Brief

The Soma WPP Capacity Addition Project was built and developed by Bilgin Güç Santralleri Enerji Üretim A.Ş. The project activity is in the Kırkağaç and Soma districts of Turkey’s western Manisa province. The project activity involves the installation of 10 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3,000 kW, making the total installed capacity addition to 30 MW. The project owner built 10 more turbines in 2016 and increased the 90 MW capacity of the existing Soma Wind Power Project (WPP) to 120 MW with the 30 MW capacity addition of the proposed project. The proposed project activity consists of only the capacity addition to the existing Soma WPP. The average energy generation per year is estimated to be 117,100 MWh. Consequently, the annual emission reductions are estimated to be 75,904 t CO2e per the applied methodology. It exports the generated electricity to the Turkish national grid with generation from wind power, thereby contributing to the Host Country’s electricity demand, energy diversification, and renewable energy development. The project activity contributes to 7 sustainable development goals (SDGs).
