Tersan Shipyard who has a 300.000 square meters advanced production facility located in Yalova, Turkey with the consumption of 2 million KWh electric per month, entered into a contract with Selenka Energy for the usage of % 100 renewable energy generated from IREC certificated (International Renewable Energy Certificate) wind farms.
I-REC certificated wind farms guarantees that the energy supplied to the final consumer is provided from renewable sources and are recognized by the main global sustainability indices as a tool that helps to meet national and international renewable energy goals. Usage of % 100 renewable green energy in the shipyard has started from September 2020, where 5 vessels delivery will take place within this year. Switching to renewable energy sources is vital for the global transition to a low or zero carbon economy. Tersan is already building environmental friendly & green ships which would not only comply with the new environmental rules and regulations but would also leave least possible carbon foot-prints.
With the new contract, Tersan took bold climate action and align its energy procurement strategies with the sustainability goals set forth by initiatives. We are also very pleased to take attention to the self-imposed responsibility about the nature as Tersan Shipyard. Thanks to the cooperation with Selenka Energy, the green ships are being built in Tersan Shipyard with clean and renewable energy generated from I-REC certificated wind farms.
