Siemens Gamesa Secures 1 Gigawatt Of New Capacity In Turkey

Spanish wind energy giant Siemens Gamesa announced this week it has signed an agreement to develop 1 gigawatts worth of wind capacity in Turkey. 

Spanish wind energy giant Siemens Gamesa announced this week it has signed an agreement to develop 1 gigawatt worth of wind capacity in Turkey.

Announced on Tuesday, Siemens Gamesa revealed that it had signed an agreement securing the right to implement up to 1 gigawatt (GW) of onshore wind capacity in Turkey. Siemens Gamesa was awarded the capacity as part of a consortium along with Turkish conglomerate Kalyon Enerji and Turkish construction company Turkerler Holding. The capacity was awarded following Turkey’s Yeka auction, the country’s first wind auction held last August.

Siemens Gamesa will provide supply, installation, and commissioning of up to 1 GW worth of wind turbines, as well as a 15-year service agreement. The agreement also includes the possibility of a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement at the consortium’s winning bid price of 3.48 US-cent per kilowatt-hour, and a commitment to build a minimum of 700 MW worth of extra wind projects by 2022.

The Consortium will also build a local nacelle factory to meet the local supply requirements imposed by Turkish authorities, as well as a separate research and development center.

Siemens Gamesa has already installed 700 MW worth of wind turbines since entering into the country for the first time back in 2010, including a 118 MW contract signed in July of last year for the Baglar and Ardicli wind farms in Turkey.

Meanwhile, Kalyon Enerji is part of another consortium alongside Hanwha Q Cells to develop a 1 GW solar park in Turkey at 6.99¢/kWh.
