* We continue to provide electricity transmission to factories with our Kentsa natural gas power plant in Kocaeli.
As a critical component of our sustainability strategy, our Tufanbeyli (TFB) power plant is in the process of evolution from thermal power generation to being a renewable energy hub.
The TFB site is in an ideal location for conversion to renewable energy sources such as solar panels or wind turbines.
With our completed and ongoing Hybrid SPP projects, the power plant, which will reach a minimum of 300 MW solar installed power over the years, is currently integrated into the electricity grid, revealing that it can play a critical role not only in increasing the speed of renewable energy projects, but also in terms of ensuring integration.
With the effect of increasing air temperatures, TFB has the potential to become a data processing and energy storage centre. Energy storage technologies have the potential to correct imbalances between generation and demand, increase energy efficiency and contribute to meeting energy demand respectively.
Our learning centre ‘Academy’ will play a key role in this transformation process and will be positioned as a talent development centre that will support employees’ adaptation to the renewable energy sector. This offers the potential to lead the industry in talent and knowledge expansion while accelerating the pace of the renewable energy transition. All these factors make TFB a prominent and exemplary model in global just transition practices.
A total of 5 wind power plants with an installed capacity of 332 MW in operation in Kayseri, Manisa, Mersin, Çanakkale and Balıkesir.
We recruited the operating team of the Erciyes WPP power plant - the construction of which was completed this year - in a timely manner, thus ensuring that they worked in sync with the project team. We also employed the first female turbine technician in the Erciyes WPP project.
We started to detect low- performance turbines and equipment-based anomalies prior to the failure, through the performance and equipment condition monitoring system we developed with the Senkron team. We increased our turbine controls by providing training to our teams in line with their development programmes.
We have started research and planning processes for the possibility of in-house service and maintenance operations of wind turbines using the experience we have so far acquired.

With the steps we took in 2021 and 2022, we turned all our wind power plants and thermal power plants into hybrid power plants with the addition of solar power plants. At the end of 2022, we commissioned 41 MW solar power plant and started 54 MW power plant investment scheduled to be completed in 2023.
With 12 power plants, we are the player that operates the most hydroelectric power plants in the private sector in Türkiye. Our power plants located in the basins of Seyhan (6 units), Ceyhan (4), Çoruh (1) and Eastern Black Sea (1) have a total installed power of 1,350 MW.
As a first in the electricity generation sector, we have successfully completed ISO 55001 Asset Management System certification studies for all hydroelectric power plants within our organisation.
In line with our targets of becoming carbon neutral in 2032 and net zero carbon in 2045 by using our renewable energy resources, we have completed the infrastructure installations of our charging stations with 22 kVA AC power in all our hydroelectric power plants.
We have designated our Dağdelen Hydroelectric Power Plant in Ceyhan Basin, with an installed capacity of 8 MW, as a structure that can be fully managed remotely enabling digital generation without humanpower.
We have made the HYDROV-Profiler Underwater measurement and observation tool, one of the innovation projects we realized with TÜBİTAK 1707 Order-Based R&D support, ready for use in all underwater structures and tunnels.
We carried out measurement and observation studies in Sarıgüzel HEPP emergency valve and energy tunnel in June 2022 and in Arkun HEPP surge tank and energy tunnel in October 2022.
We have created the Maintenance Management Strategy, which we call New Age Maintenance, by going beyond the traditional maintenance approach for the continuity of our power plants to operate at the desired performance level.
In this context, together with the root cause analysis of the malfunctions we experienced using the RCA (Root Cause Analysis) method, we identified the malfunctions that our critical equipment may encounter in the future with the FMEA (Failure Mode Effect Analysis) method.
As a result of the work done, we achieved the lowest breakdown maintenance rate in the last 5 years, reaching 96.2% availability.
Bandırma Energy Base has the distinction of being the first hybrid power plant in Türkiye. This energy base, which is the only one in Europe, has 2 natural gas power plants with a generation capacity of 1543 MW, as well as unlicensed and auxiliary source generation facilities (solar and hydroelectric) with a total generation capacity of 22 MW.
Incorporating different technologies, Bandırma Energy Base continues to create value and shed light on the future with its pioneering position in innovation, by providing an R&D environment at different stages of the sector.
By means of the Predictive Maintenance Approach and the digitalization projects developed, we decreased the breakdown maintenance from 20% to 17% and achieved an improvement versus a year ago.
Kentsa continued its operations to ensure the continuity of electricity supply to the factories located on its site.
We have implemented 70 projects worth 101 MTL in our planned maintenance activities and on efficiency, reliability, availability, environment, employee health and safety. We increased our generation capacity, increased the net efficiency of the power plant by 1% on a unit basis and achieved the highest annual generation since the start of operation.
