Kangal Elektrik Uretim A.S, a subsidiary of Ece Tur Construction, has placed a 34 MW order to construct the second phase of the Kangal RES wind power plant in the Sivas province, Turkey.
The firm and unconditional order comprises the supply and installation of 17 units of the V110-2.0 MW wind turbine corresponding to 34 MW. The contract also includes an eight-year full scope Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement.

Once fully operational, the second phase of this project will provide additional electricity capacity to power approximately 200,000 people in the country.
“Wind energy is leading the way to a renewable energy future in Turkey. Vestas is proud to have installed nearly 800 MW of wind power capacity in this country. The Kangal RES II wind farm is another step forward to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preventing the most severe impacts of climate change as well as lessening the dependency on energy imports”, states Marco Graziano, President of Vestas Mediterranean.
