Since entering the Turkish market in 2007, the Nordex Group has installed more than 2.03 GW of wind capacity there, representing a market share of almost 27 per cent. Now the company has again received orders from this country on the Bosporus: for its long-standing customer Boydak Enerji, the Nordex Group will supply 21 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines with a rated capacity of 4.8 MW each for the “Ömerli” wind farm. On top of this, Boydak Enerji has ordered an additional 22 N117/3675 turbines for the “Sibel” project. Both orders include Premium Service for the machines for a period of 10 years.
The future 110.8 MW “Ömerli” wind farm will be built near Istanbul. The Nordex Group will build “Sibel”, with a total capacity of 80.9 MW, in the Aegean region between Izmir and Manisa.
“Since 2013, Boydak Enerji has been using turbines from the Nordex Group in the Canta RES wind farm. By once again opting for our technology, as well as for our latest turbine generation, our partner has shown that our turbines meet its expectations,” comments Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
In addition to these two contracts, a utility has ordered 14 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines with a rated capacity of 4.8 MW for a 67 MW wind farm in the Marmara region. The order includes a Premium Service of the turbines for a period of 10 years as well.
For years now, the Nordex Group has been purchasing major turbine components in Turkey in order to increase added value there. Customers benefit from a higher feed-in remuneration if the rotor blades, anchor cages, towers and generators, among other components, are produced locally.
