Turkey’s Çalık to build wind power plant in Georgia

Çalık Energy has agreed to build a wind power plant in Georgia’s Kartli region, reports Georgian news platform Agenda.ge.

The decision was made following meetings in Ankara on Wednesday between Georgia’s Economy Minister Dimitry Kumsishvili and chairman of the supervisory board of Çalık Energy, Ahmad Çalık.

Çalık Energy plans to invest $70 million in the project, to be implemented in coordination with Georgia’s Energy Development Fund, which will boost existing wind power projects in Kartli.

Çalık Energy is involved in energy related projects across the Middle East, Central Asia, Africa and the Balkans. It is part of the Çalık group, a conglomerate with close ties to Turkey’s government.
