Nordex to equip, install 45 MW wind farm in Turkey
ISTANBUL (Turkey), December 8 (SeeNews) – German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex said on Monday it has received an order to equip and install a 45 megawatt (MW) wind farm in Turkey from local conglomerate Adali Holding.
The order entails the delivery, installation and 10-year service of 15 units of Nordex’ N117/3000 Generation Delta turbines, Nordex said in a statement.
Nordex will build the Kiyikoy wind farm on the Black Sea coast in the northern Turkish province of Tekirdag in 2015. The facility will be able to generate more than 170,000 MWh of electricity per year, equivalent to a capacity factor of more than 43%, according to Nordex.
The anchor cages, rotor blades and towers for the wind turbines will be produced in Turkey. The locally manufactured content will enable the customer to apply for a higher feed-in tariff.
Adali Holding is active in construction, tourism, project development, real estate and energy. The company operates hydropower and geothermal power stations and has licences for 150 MW of wind farms. It aims to have 300 MW of installed wind and hydropower capacity.
