Individual company presentation

Fortis Energy, a subsidiary of UCK Holding, commenced energy production activities in 2014 under the name of Başakkent Energy and Berak Energy. Berak Energy, a company in the renewable energy generation sector since 2014, changed its name to Fortis Energy in 2019. Following the amalgamation with Başakkent Energy in 2021, Fortis Energy consolidated all its activities. Fortis Energy is presently engaged in energy investments in the Balkans, Türkiye, and the Netherlands.

Fortis Energy’s solar and biogas power plants generate over 330,000,000 kWh of electricity annually. With facilities in various locations in Türkiye, such as Manisa, Denizli, Afyonkarahisar, İzmir, Bilecik, Balıkesir, and Burdur, Fortis Energy has established itself as one of the leading energy providers in the country. Additionally, Fortis Energy executes turnkey EPC projects in different cities of Türkiye, Netherlands, and the Balkans.

With the current emphasis on clean and sustainable resources, renewable energy sources and alternative energy production methods have become more significant in terms of energy costs and environmental impact. Fortis Energy prioritizes electricity generation from renewable energy sources and aims to be an R&D center for automation and software systems, coupled with eco-friendly solutions.

In the solar projects’ execution process, the permit, engineering, procurement, and installation stages are managed by group companies with group resources. Steel construction for solar panel installations is performed at Fortis Energy’s facilities. After installation, maintenance, operation, monitoring, and security procedures are undertaken by Fortis Energy’s forcare brand. forcare specializes in advanced power plant management based on remote management and automation through its software and hardware.

Fortis Energy has solar power plants with a total installed capacity of 190MW, as well as two biogas plants located in Denizli Acıpayam and Burdur Karamanlı locations. Biogas power plants of 9.36 MW in Burdur and 3.12 MW in Denizli continue to operate at high capacity. In addition to biogas and elec­tricity production, organic fertilizer production is also carried out in biogas power plants, which have an annual total electricity production potential of over 100,000,000 kWh.

Fortis Energy aims to achieve a total of 1000MW of renewable energy projects in the Balkans within five years. The first phase of the project, the 80MW Oslomej Solar Power Plant, was built in North Macedonia. With its 485MW projects scheduled to be completed in 2023, Fortis Energy aims to be one of the leading companies in the sector in Europe.
