Şah WPP & Mersin WPP

Keen to grow in the field of renewable energy, Doğan Enerji entered the wind power generation sector in 2012. At that time, the company added Mersin WPP and Şah WPP, which operate under the name Galata Wind Enerji A.Ş., to its power plant portfolio. As Doğan Enerji’s fully owned subsidiaries, Mersin WPP operates in Mersin province, Mut district, and Şah WPP in Balıkesir province, Bandırma district. Following the takeover procedures, the installed capacity of Mersin WPP was increased from 33 MW to 42 MW in 2013, and Şah WPP went up from 93 MW to 105 MW. Following the investment decision in 2016, the extension project of Mersin WPP began in 2017. Recently, six Vestas V112 turbines each with a capacity of 3.45 MW were added to the power plant to bring its installed capacity to 62.7 MW. The capacity extension was finalized on December 20, 2017. Mersin WPP and Şah WPP, whose licenses were obtained in 2007 and 2008 and which have a total installed capacity of 167.7 MW, are expected to generate an annual 520 million kWh of electricity in total. In particular, Mersin WPP is one of the most efficient wind plants in Turkey due to its location and generation data, and therefore contributes significantly to the Doğan Enerji portfolio.

Taşpınar WPP

Doğan Enerji wants to grow in the field of wind power, and has in its portfolio the 60 MW Taşpınar WPP project, which is currently in the pre-license stage. Permission procedures continue for the Taşpınar WPP project, which is located in the Bursa-Mustafakemalpaşa region. It is expected to receive the license in the last quarter of 2018, and initiate construction activities by 2019.

The project is free from royalty fee and Doğan Enerji plans to benefit from local infrastructure to receive local content incentives and enjoy YEKDEM support. As such, the project is expected to occupy a major place in the Doğan Enerji portfolio.
