SAH Wind Farm
About this Project
Why Wind Power? Wind power is one of the oldest ways of producing energy, and still is one of the most sustainable options available to us, since wind is a source of power that we can’t exhaust making it 100% renewable.
Why Turkey? Since the beginning of the century, Turkey has been ranked second to China globally in its increase in demand for electricity and natural gas. Rather than relying on oil, natural gas, and coal, sustainable electricity generation solutions need to be funded in order to support the country’s growing needs, without negatively impacting the environment via fossil fuel usage.
What is the solution? The project has installed Sah WPP with 105 MWM/105 MWe installed capacity in Bandirma district of Balikesir and Karacabey district of Bursa, Turkey. The project WPP has 35 turbines of which 22 are in Balikesir province, and 13 are in Bursa province, each with an output of 3.0 MW. The total electricity production of the project is expected to be 341.275 MWh/year. Sah WPP has connected via a 35 km transmission line to the 154 kV Gobel Transformer Station and the generated electricity is supplied to Turkey’s national electricity grid.
