October 19th, 2012 by Adam Johnston
The new endeavour between Tefirom and the Zaf Group with Vestas will include 9 V112-3.0 MW wind turbines for the Senuk wind power plant in Hatay, Turkey.
Vestas’ new deal in Turkey will include a 10-year active management output (AMO) agreement, along with the servicing, installation, delivery, and commissioning of the brand new wind turbines, a news release from Vestas noted.
“Having been chosen by Zaf and Tefirom for the first V112-3.0 MW wind power plant in Turkey is a clear sign of trust in our proven and reliable technology. With this order, Vestas reinforces its presence in Turkey and is fully committed to support the expansion of the Turkish wind energy market,” said Acting President of Vestas Mediterranean and Chief Sales Officer of Vestas Wind Systems A/S Juan Araluce in the release.
Meanwhile, Vestas is expected to deliver the turbines in the first quarter of 2013, with power from the new turbines up and running by the second quarter 2013, as well.
Annual production of the Senbuk power plant is expected to be 97,800 megawatt-hours of electricity, reducing about 50,000 tons of carbon emissions from the air each year, Vestas said.
