Nordex has been awarded three contracts for wind farms with a capacity of a total of 45 MW in Turkey. The manufacturer will be installing seven N117/3000 turbines close to the city of Izmir in Western Turkey for its new customer Üçgen Rüzgar Enerjisi Elektrik Üretim Anonim ?irketi. This Delta series turbine is the optimum fit for this IEC 2 site with average wind speeds of 8.5 m/s. The wind farm is the first project which the company is implementing with Nordex.
Nordex is delivering a further four Delta turbines to another new customer, Süper Enerji, for the “Çataltepe” wind farm near Istanbul. This project marks Süper Enerji’s first foray into the wind power industry. Süper Enerji is a member of Süper Group that is active in active in textile, construction, tourism, geothermal and hydropower energy business.
The third order for Nordex comes from project developer REA Elektrik and entails the delivery of five N117/2400 turbines for the “Zincirli” wind farm. Following the “Kurtkayasi” and “Yahyali” projects, this is the third order which Nordex has received for a wind farm in the province in Kayseri. The N117/2400 turbine is the ideal solution for the light-wind conditions prevailing at this site.
To date, Nordex has installed a total output of almost 1,000 megawatts in Turkey, with a further 400 currently under construction. As a result, it holds around 23 percent of the Turkish market.
As one of the technological leaders in multi-megawatt wind power systems, Nordex is benefiting from the trend in favour of large-scale turbines. The Generation Gamma range comprises the N90/2500, N100/2500 and the N117/2400, which is one of the most efficient series turbines for light wind regions. To date, over 3,600 of these turbines have been produced. With Generation Delta, Nordex is now offering the fourth generation of its proven multi-megawatt platform (N100/3300, N117/3000, N131/3000 and the N131/3300 for Germany). Nordex has installed more than 6,000 turbines with an aggregate capacity of over 10,000 MW all around the world. With exports accounting for around 70 percent of its business, Nordex SE also plays a key role in international high-growth regions.
