The government of Turkey – backed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) – has launched a tender for consulting services that will encompass the assessment of offshore wind and wave energy potential off the Eurasian country.

The aim of the initiative is to update and upgrade the existing wind energy potential atlas extending to offshore all around Turkey and to create a wave energy potential atlas.

In addition to the atlases, the consultant – which can be formed by a single or a consortium of companies regardless of the country of origin of the applicants – will conduct a market assessment of offshore wind technology and review the associated challenges.

The scope of work also includes making the Wave Energy Potential Atlas (DEPA) that will identify the energy potential arising from waves, current and thermal cycle in Turkey’s seas.

Therefore, the tender has included guidelines regarding the structure of the expert team which will provide consulting services, stating it must be made up of wind experts, as well as ocean energy professional with experience in wave power, as well as environmental and social expert for offshore renewable projects.

The consultant should also integrate local professional skills and cooperate with local consulting companies to gain advantage of the available local expertise, the government noted.

The tender states the estimated cost of the assignment amounts to around €350,000, with the due date for applications set for September 3, 2018.

The outputs from the project will be used by the EBRD, and the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey, and – ‘possibly’ – by other stakeholders.
