Hydro equipment manufacturer Indar celebrates first 1,000 MW of installed hydropower in Turkey

Hydro generator manufacturer Indar Electric recently held an event to celebrate its first 1,000 MW of hydropower installed in Turkey. Over 100 guests attended the event at Ankara’s Swissotel Hotel.

Indar’s representative in Turkey, Mahzuni Yasar, opened the event and introduced the speakers. The first speaker was the Turkish Minister of Energy, Taner Yildiz, who mentioned Indar’s notable presence in the country as an exemplary reference in the field of hydropower. He encouraged Indar to continue with their work in favour of a more sustainable Turkey.

Spain’s Ambassador in Turkey, Mr Cristobal Gonzà¡lez-Aller, spoke afterwards. He highlighted the impetus of commercial bilateral relations between both markets, mentioning that Turkey is Spain’s second largest export market outside the European Union. He went on to comment on Indar’s participation in the Spanish-Turkish Bilateral Committee in Ankara and Istanbul in 2009.

Next to speak was Peio Pagola, Director of the Hydro Business Unit. He recapped Indar’s background experience in Turkey, from the outset in 2006 until the present day, and reaffirmed the company’s commitment to the country, a commitment which he said would continue to increase in the near future.

Finally, Indar’s Sales Director Pedro Garciandia spoke and highlighted the fact that the energy supplied by Indar in Turkey is capable of covering the domestic needs of over 300,000 homes, thus contributing to reducing the emission of harmful gases into the atmosphere. He also thanks the regulatory authorities for their clear commitment to hydro power as a renewable energy as well as the dynamic nature of the Turkish business network.

Other guests at the event included Jon Amutxastegi (Hydro Sales Manager for Turkey), Isaac Martà­n-Barbero (Trade Commissioner at Spanish Embassy in Ankara), as well as the CEOs of the regulatory body for water licenses and the body for transmitting electricity in Turkey.

The event was attended by Turkey’s major energy investors, including large corporations such as Gama, Sanko, MNG, EnergiSA, Borusan, etc.

To commemorate this event, Indar gave the authorities and the clients attending the event an engraving by the artist E. Yunta from Bilbao. The engraving shows a representation of one of the most characteristic symbols of Turkey.

There was significant press coverage of the event in which the Energy Minister gave a press conference which was followed by 6 television channels and 12 journalists who published articles on Indar’s event in the national press.
