Vestas Secures 46 MW Wind Order In Turkey

Vestas Wind Systems announced that it has been awarded a 46 MW wind turbine order in Turkey.

The wind energy giant announced the news last Friday, after being awarded a firm and unconditional order for 14 of its V126-3.3 MW turbines for the Amasya wind power project being developed in Turkey by Sehzade Enerji, which is fully owned by GNCR Holding and Eurowind Holdings.

“We are pleased to partner for the first time with Sehzade Enerji and to share with them our expertise and capabilities to successfully undertake this project,” said President of Vestas Mediterranean, Marco Graziano. “Turkey plans to expand its wind power capacity fivefold by 2023, so driving down the cost of energy is critical. Vestas’ cost-effective and innovative wind energy solutions are helping to reach that goal.”

The order includes the supply and installation of the 14 wind turbines, as well as a five-year Active Output Management service agreement.

Delivery of the turbines is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2016, with construction completion scheduled for the second quarter. Upon completion, the Amasya wind power project is expected to produce approximately 155,000 MWh annually, which would correspond approximately to providing enough electricity to power 65,000 Turkish households.

Vestas has had a long history with Turkey, dating all the way back to 1984. Since then, the company has installed 846 MW of wind power capacity in the country, which Vestas says corresponds to approximately 23% of the total installed electrical capacity in Turkey.

The last time we covered a deal between Vestas and Turkey was all the way back in October of 2012, when Tefirom and the Zaf Group ordered 9 V112-3.0 MW wind turbines for the Senbük wind power plant in Hatay, Turkey. That project has since grown to encompass a total of 21 turbines provided by Vestas, amounting to approximately 65 MW.
