The tenders are expected to start in June 2017 and be completed by the end of the year.

TEİAŞ has announced additional capacity for electricity generation based on wind energy of 2,000 MW** in 2016. EPDK has also announced that preliminary license applications for additional capacity would be taken by April 2017.
