Çalık Enerji has achieved major accomplishments since the beginning of the 2000s, thanks to the success in engineering, construction, supply and logistics activities for the projects undertaken in Turkmenistan. In the light of these accomplishments, Çalık Enerji has thus far successfully operationalized 12 power plants with the total capacity of 2.587,20 MW in Turkmenistan. At the same time, Çalık Enerji has constructed approximately 149 km of 220 kV and 14 km of 110 kV high voltage power transmission lines within the framework of the “Derweze Simple Cycle Power Plant” construction project. Having also constructed and put into service a number of load dispatching centers, high voltage power transmission lines and substations under the “Increasing the Reliability of Power Supply to the City of Ashgabat” project, Çalık Enerji continues its activities in Turkmenistan with new projects. At present, the company is working full speed on the construction of the “1.574 MW Mary-3 Combined Cycle Power Plant”, which will be the largest power plant in the country.
Using its vast experience and know-how, Çalık Enerji completed the construction of the first and largest combined cycle power plant of Uzbekistan, the “478 MW Navoi Combined Cycle Power Plant”, in 2012. Having further strengthened the trust, gained through the successful implementation of the Navoi-1 project, Çalık Enerji has commenced the construction of two new power plants in Uzbekistan. These new projects with the total installed capacity of 1.350 MW are the “450 MW Navoi-2 Power Plant” and the “900 MW Turakurgan Power Plant”. With these two large-scale projects, Çalık Enerji has solidified its position and role in the energy sector of Uzbekistan.
In Iraq, Çalık Enerji has successfully completed and handed over Iraq’s largest power plant projects with the total capacity of 2.000 MW, namely the “1.250 MW Al-Khairat Simple Cycle Power Plant” and the “750 MW Nainawa Simple Cycle Power Plant”. In 2014, the “1.250 MW Al-Khairat Power Plant” constructed by Çalık Energy in Iraq, was named the “Best Global Industrial Project” and awarded the "Global First Prize" under the "Industrial Facility" category by the “Engineering News Record” (ENR) magazine, one of the world’s most prestigious institutions in engineering and contracting.
Çalık Enerji was also the one to construct the “230 MW Gardabani Combined Cycle Power Plant”, which is the first combined cycle power plant in Georgia. The plant was put into operation on July 22, 2015 and as a result of the success demonstrated during construction and start-up, Çalık Enerji was tasked with the operation and maintenance services of the plant.
Çalık Enerji continues its operations in Africa through the construction of the “550 MW Al-Khums Fast Track Simple Cycle Power Plant” in Libya and in Middle East – through the “60 MW Aden Simple Cycle Power Plant” project.
As of the year 2016, Çalık Enerji has successfully completed 20 power plants in Turkey, Turkmenistan, Iraq, Uzbekistan and Georgia with the total capacity of approximately 5.400 MW. The total capacity of the 5 power plants currently under construction amounts to 3.500 MW.
As an investor in Turkey, Çalık Enerji holds many licenses in the field of power generation, including licenses for hydroelectric power plants, wind power plants, solar power plants, gas-fired power plants and coal-fired power plants. One of them, the “Adacami Hydroelectric Power Plant” with the capacity of 30 MW, has been generating power since 2013, while the remaining plants are projected to be launched in the near future.
Çalık Enerji's first wind power plant investments, the “Demircili and Sarpıncık Wind Power Plants” in the Demircili and Sarpıncık districts of İzmir, with the total installed capacity of 72 MW generated by 29 turbines, were opened and launched into operation by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a joint opening ceremony held in October 2016. Apart from these wind power plants, the company’s first solar power plant – the “Polatlı Solar Power Plant” - belonging to Çalık Enerji has also been launched into operation, generating and selling electricity since June 29, 2016.
In the forthcoming years, Çalık Enerji is aiming at taking new EPC projects in the target markets and expanding to new fields of operation that will add to its value. In order to successfully reach these goals Çalık Enerji is continuing to grow its strengths and to further improve its organizational capabilities with each passing day.
