Supreme Court decision re planning of wind turbine project, Çeşme, Turkey

ABK Energy secured a contract to purchase and install six German-made Nordex turbines (18 MW) on private and public land located in Cesme Turkey. The Cesme wind energy facility was opposed by residents who took their objections to the court. In January 2014, the same time when construction was started, the court issued a stop order. Permission to proceed with building the project was ultimately withdrawn after the court ruled the project was not in the “public good and interest.” The below statement was issued by environmental lawyer, Mehmet Horuş following the court's decision.
