Project Overview

With strong and steady winds, the west coast of Turkey is ideal for wind energy. The Yuntdag wind farm supported by First Climate lies approximately 60 km north of Izmir. The project comprises 17 wind turbines with a rotor diameter of 90 m and an output of 2 MW each. The annual production is sufficient to supply 80,000 households in the surrounding area with electricity.
