German wind turbine maker ENERCON and Turkish energy generation company Enerjisa Üretim have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

The MoU calls for the delivery of two of the most recent E-175 EP5 wind energy converters from ENERCON. The contract was inked in Copenhagen during the WindEurope trade show. It states that by the end of 2024, ENERCON will install two prototypes of its newest wind turbine model in Turkey, which has a rotor diameter of 175 metres (575 feet) and a nominal power of 6 megawatts (MW).

According to ENERCON CEO Jürgen Zeschky, “We are glad that we are continuing our relationship-based partnership with Enerjisa Üretim with our new turbine type.

“ENERCON already provides wind turbines for the YEKA RES 2 project, through which we plan to install 1,000 MW of onshore power in Türkiye for Enerjisa Üretim over the course of the following three years. We are beginning the next phase of our collaboration with the delivery of the new E-175 EP5, he stated.

The largest and most powerful wind energy converter in ENERCON’s current product line, with a rotor diameter of 175 metres and a nominal output of 6 MW, is the ENERCON E-175 EP5. It makes use of the tried-and-true direct drive technology, a cutting-edge E-nacelle with electrical systems integrated into the machine house, and an 86-meter-long one-piece rotor blade, the longest ENERCON has yet manufactured.

The Enerjisa Üretim Balkesir Wind Power Plant and Enerjisa Üretim Bandrma Energy Base locations, both in the Balkesir region of western Turkey, will be home to these wind turbines.
