The wind power plant for Turkey’s Petkim petrochemical complex, in which the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (Socar) has a share, will be launched next year, Kenan Yavuz, Socar Turkey’s CEO, said during the 22nd Caspian Oil and Gas Conference in Baku, Azerbaijan.

„As Socar Turkey, we are fulfilling our share of the burden in promoting renewable energy that is on the top of Turkey’s energy strategy. Petkim Wind Power Plant, developed with an installed power of 27 MW in the first phase and 24 MW in the second, will contribute to the region’s clean power need and Turkey’s renewable energy capacity… I am proud to claim that we are Turkey’s biggest investor,” he was quoted on the company’s website.

The fair took off in Baku with the participation of Azerbaijan’s president İlham Aliyev. A total of 402 companies participated, including ones from Turkey, Russia, United States, United Kingdom and France. Socar Turkey introduced Petkim Value-Site Project and Tanap, two major projects with a total investment cost up to USD 20 billion (EUR 17.83 billion). Aliyev visited Socar Turkey’s stand.

Last year Alstom signed a contract worth more than EUR 55 million with Petkim for the supply of 17 ECO 110 wind turbines of 3 MW each for the wind farm in the Izmir Aliaga peninsula. The scope of the contract includes construction, supply and engineering works of the power plant to be built as turnkey delivery project.
