Nordex has announced it was awarded three new contracts totaling 37.6 MW in Turkey during the fourth quarter of last year.
In summer 2014, Nordex will be supplying six of its N117/3000 Generation Delta turbines for the 18 MW Cesme RES project, which is located on a peninsula close to Izmir. Launched in spring 2013, the N117/3000 is specifically designed for medium-strong wind conditions. The customer and future owner of the wind farm is ABK Cesme Enerji Uretim A.S.
Named Aliaga RES, the second project is also located in the Izmir region and comprises four N117/2400 turbines. With average speeds of 7 m/s, this location has IEC III wind conditions. Akca Holding is the investor, and construction is scheduled for summer 2014.
In addition, returning customer Karesi Enerji has placed an order with Nordex for four N100/2500 turbines to extend the 45 MW Akres wind farm. Installed by Nordex in 2011, the farm currently has 18 N90/2500 turbines.
Nordex notes it has installed a capacity of 710 MW in Turkey to date, and the company received 160 MW of orders in the country last year.
