                     Studies during Construction

                     and Operation Stage

                     During the construction and operation stage of Balabanlı, Koru, Fuat and
                     Kartaldağı Wind Power Plants, Investments and Operations Departments
                     initiated ornithological observations for 2 years to minimize environmental
                     impacts, observe wildlife around the plants and maintain sustainability.

                     Studies were carried out during Spring and Fall with a 50 thousand dol-
                     lars budget. Ornithological observations were conducted and reported in

                     cooperation with Akdeniz University. The turbines sometimes are stopped
                     when necessary by the direction of experts in order to eliminate negative
                     impacts on birds.
