*Catalca 60 MW Wind Power Project(ID: 103000000002544)
Sanko Rüzgar Enerjisi Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Þ.
The Catalca wind power project, located in the Istanbul region in Turkey, shall generate some 211 GWh electricity per year and feed it into the Turkish grid. The project design follows the Gold Standard rules and ACM0002. The expected annual emission reductions amount to 149,510 tCO2 p.a. The investment into a wind farm is not part of the baseline scenario as it faces prohibitive barriers due to prevailing practice. The use of wind energy by private companies is very new in Turkey, with the first four plants all realised with the help of carbon financing. The proposed project was welcomed during the initial stakeholder consultations.
