Turkey has a total locational potential for 55GW of offshore wind, mostly floating, according to the World Bank as it gave a glimpse of an upcoming offshore wind roadmap for the country, but a government representative was unable to give real insights into Ankara’s plans for wind at sea.

While the World Bank had earlier said Turkey has a technical potential for 75GW of offshore wind, the 200-page-report to be launched at year-end focused more closely on the most realistic potential alongside Turkey’s western coast in the Aegean and Marmara Seas, resulting in the lower figure.
