Karlsruhe. The German-Turkish joint venture Borusan EnBW Enerji, in which the partners Borusan and EnBW each hold a 50 percent stake, has successfully concluded another onshore project. The “MUT” wind farm is located in the south of Turkey, east of Antalya, and has an output of 50 megawatts. The 16 Vestas V112-3300 wind power plants can generate around 153 gigawatt hours of electricity per year. This now brings the installed capacity of the renewable portfolio of the German-Turkish joint venture to a total of 337 megawatts.
EnBW had already placed two new wind farms “Harmanlik” and “Koru” into operation in Turkey around four weeks ago. Another onshore wind farm called “Fuatres” (30 megawatts) is still under construction and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Borusan EnBW Enerji, with headquarters in Istanbul, was founded in the summer of 2009 as a joint venture between EnBW and the Turkish company Borusan. The goal of this joint venture is to expand the generating capacity from renewable energies in Turkey by around 2,000 megawatts. The equal partners are jointly investing several billion to achieve this goal.
