Wind energy in Turkey: Nordex wind turbines for a wind farm

The Nordex Group has received another contract from Turkey. From April 2018 onwards, it will be installing nine turbines with a total capacity of 30 megawatts in the Province of Izmir. The customer is Umut Insaat, which is constructing the sixth project in Turkey with Nordex with this order.


Located at an altitude of 1,200 metres, the site is characterized by good wind conditions. For this reason, the customer has decided to order N117/3600 and N117/3000 turbines, which are designed for these wind conditions. Nordex will be supplying key components for the turbines from within Turkey in order to increase local manufacturing content.

The Group has installed wind power capacity of more than 21 GW in over 25 markets, generating sales of EUR 3.4 billion in 2016. It currently has roughly 5,000 employees. The production network comprises plants in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States and India. The product range primarily concentrates on onshore turbines in the 1.5 – 4.5 MW class addressing the requirements of developed as well as emerging markets.
