Partner EGS & Polat Enerji to install storage at Turkey’s largest wind project

January 22, 2024

Energy storage system provider Partner EGS and renewable energy company Polat Enerji have signed an agreement for a 4MW-4MWh capacity energy storage system to be used in the Soma RES project, Turkey’s largest wind energy power plant project, Soma RES.

The energy storage systems will be supplied by Huawei.

Soma RES is a 120MW onshore wind power project located in Manisa, Turkey.

Alper Terciyanlı, CEO of Partner EGS, said: “By integrating Partner EGS’s domestic software and engineering solutions into the hardware provided by Huawei, we offer competitive and superior energy storage systems that fully meet the market needs to our renewable energy investors. We believe that our leading role in this process will also make significant contributions to the development of the sector, and we would like to thank all our stakeholders who have chosen us for their trust and support.”

Neşet Özgür Cireli, Polat Enerji board member, added: “We will commission Turkey’s first grid-scale storage system at Turkey’s largest wind power plant, Soma RES. With the wind and solar power plants we have established, we produce approximately 2 billion kWh of electricity annually. Thus, we reduce approximately 1.25 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to planting 50 million trees annually, and meet the electricity consumption needs of around 610,000 people.”
