Turkey's largest wind power plant to date, the 39.2 MW Mare installation at Çesme, near Izmir, was completed last month. The project was developed by Demirer Holding, one of Turkey's leading wind power developers and owner-operators, while Enercon supplied the 49, E48 800 kW turbines. Ownership is split 50-50 between Demirer Holding and Enercon. The two companies also co-own Enercon Aero (52% Enercon and 48% Demirer Holding), which manufactures blades for Enercon's E44 and E48 models in Izmir. The Mare project brings Demirer's installed wind power capacity to 60.1 MW, out of a national total of 99.35 MW. Next in line for the company will be a 30.4 MW facility at Anemone near Çanakkale, north of Izmir due for completion in March. The plant is jointly owned by Demirer and local company Ado Energy.
