This is the fourth contract Siemens has undertaken in the country, and this latest project will see the Balabanli plant achieve a capacity of 50 megawatts, enough to supply approximately 43,000 Turkish households with clean electricity.

“The Turkish wind energy market is attractive for Siemens and we expect further growth in the future,” said Felix Ferlemann, CEO of the Wind Power Division of Siemens Energy. “The fourth wind power order from Turkey shows that we are not only doing well in the offshore sector, but that we are also successful in onshore wind energy.”

Siemens will be providing 22 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 2.3 megawatts and a rotor diameter of 108 metres. Siemens will also be providing a long-term service agreement which will see the company guaranteeing availability and extended warranty on major components over the entire term of the agreement.
