In the first quarter of 2016, Nordex obtained three new orders for a total of more than 40 MW in Turkey. These projects, for 18 turbines altogether, are located in different regions of the country and cover wind classes IEC 1 to 3.
The largest of the projects is the “Karacabey” wind farm in the province of Bursa, where Nordex will supply 12 N100/2500 turbines for this wind farm for its customer Arti Enerji, install them on a turnkey basis, and hand them over to the customer ready for operation. The N100/2500 is designed for IEC-2 sites so ideally suits the location of “Karacabey”.
For its customer Akça Enerji Nordex will be supplying four N117/2400s for the “Aliaga” extension. This project is situated in a region with light winds in Izmir, in the province of Aliaga. The four Nordex turbines will add 9.6 MW to this wind farm.
The third project is the “Teperes” extension for the customer Ertürk Grup. “Teperes” is located in Büyükçekmece, Istanbul, where Nordex will supply two of its strong-wind N90/2500 turbines.
Nordex had a strong year end with a good project volume achieving closing in the last quarter of 2015. Now, in total, the company has 1.3 GW installed capacity in Turkey, with a market share of around 25 percent.
