Opportunities for Danish companies

Unique Location
As the intersection point of Europe, Central Asia and Middle East, Turkey is a gate to these regions. More energy transformation projects will be adopted in the Middle East and North Africa Region. Thanks to geographical and cultural proximity, Turkey can be used as a hub to those growing markets.

Skilled Labour Force

Component Sourcing
Turkey is advanced in producing components of wind energy industry; with the new YEKA investment model, which promotes local industry, Turkey will increase its capacity even more in the near future. For emerging markets around Turkey, energy components can be produced in Turkey.

  • A great number of government incentives.
  • Partnership and production opportunities with Turkish Companies.
  • Strategic Sector cooperation Project and government-to-government cooperation between Turkey and Denmark on offshore and onshore wind will create the framework for business development for Danish companies.
