Within the body of Polat Energy, which established its first company in 2000 and started its investments in the field of renewable energy in Turkey, which has a great potential in renewable energy, having added Erguvan Enerji Göktepe WPP to Soma WPP, Geycek WPP, Poyraz WPP, Seyitali WPP, Cıngıllı SPP in March 2022, the total installed power of Polat Energy Group in 6 power plants has reached 695 MW.
Polat Holding Energy Group President Arkın Akbay: Greenhouse Gas Emission Will Decrease By 1 Million 200 Thousand Tons A Year!
Noting that Polat Energy Group will produce 312 million kWh of energy annually with the Göktepe Wind Power Plant, which came into service this quarter, Polat Holding Energy Group President Arkın Akbay, said: ”Our Göktepe Wind Power Plant was commissioned at full capacity with 112.7 MWm/110 MWe. SOMA WWP, one of our wind power plants, is Turkey's largest wind power plant with an installed power of 288.1 MW. GEYCEK WWP, on the other hand, is Turkey's fourth largest wind power plant with an installed power of 168 MW. We produced 1.7 billion kWh of electricity in 2021 with our renewable power plants. In addition, with the power plants in our portfolio, we contribute to the reduction of 1 million 200 thousand tons of greenhouse gas emissions every year, starting from 2022, and produce clean energy to meet the electrical energy consumption of an average of 600 thousand households. We continue to equip our country's high-quality wind and solar energy with new technologies, carrying it to higher and more economical renewable capacity and giving the green light to the future.”
Polat Holding Chairman Adnan Polat: We set the target as Eastern Europe in energy!
Adnan Polat, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Polat Holding, which continues to work on projects that add value to Turkey, expressed his view on the energy sector with the following words: “Türkiye has a high potential for renewable energy sources. In particular, it is located in a solar-rich region called the solar belt. It even ranks first among European countries in terms of its potential to generate electricity from solar energy. Germany started its investments in renewable energy almost at the same time as Turkey. Germany has two-thirds as many hours of sunshine as Turkey, but by 2021 they have completed about 60,000 megawatts of solar installation. Türkiye, on the other hand, was only able to exceed 7 thousand megawatts. In the wind, Germany is at approximately 56 thousand megawatts, while Turkey is at 11 thousand megawatts. Turkey needs to increase both the wind and the sun to much higher megawatts in a short time. In this way, our dependence on foreign energy, especially natural gas and coal supply, which is very important for our national security, will decrease.
In this sense, as Polat Holding, we will always continue to support projects that we believe will add value to our country in terms of renewable energy. As for abroad, we continue the work that we started in Hungary in 2017 to develop solar power plants without slowing down. The first headquarters of the holding subsidiaries in Turkey is Istanbul, and in Hungary it is Budapest. We receive offers from many countries globally, but our first target is Eastern Europe.”
