First construction permit issued in Turkey

The Turkish subsidiary of innoVent in Izmit is looking

forward to beginning construction on the windfarm

Yuntdag in the Province of Izmir. The Turkish Electricity Market Regulatory Authority, EPDK, has

granted a construction and operating license for

a period of 20 years. The planned windfarm project, with an overall capacity of 42 MW, has also been licensed for a grid connection.


However, before the project can go into operation, a new law on the production of electricity through renewable energy sources must be passed by the Turkish parliament.
