Vestas has received an order for the 46.2 MW Amasya wind power project, located in Turkey. The project will consist of 14 V126-3.3 MW turbines, a machine designed for greater wind capture in low-wind, high-turbulence sites.
The order, placed by Sehzade Enerji, a subsidiary of GNCR Holding and Eurowind Holdings, comprises the supply and installation of the wind turbines, as well as a five-year service agreement. Turbine delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2016, with turbine commissioning scheduled for the second quarter. Upon completion, the Amasya wind power plant is expected to produce about 155,000 MWh annually.
Vestas has been present in Turkey since 1984 and has installed 846 MW of wind power capacity in the country, corresponding to approximately 23% of the total installed capacity of the country.
