The Nordex Group will provide 39 turbines totaling 187 megawatts to Turkey's Caba Grup for the second construction phase of the Istanbul Wind Farm, the Nordex Group announced in a statement on Thursday.
The wind farm, located 50 km northwest of Istanbul on the Black Sea, will comprise 44 turbines once completed. This makes the 211 MW wind farm "Istanbul" the largest single licensed project in Turkey to date.
The order also includes a premium turbine service contract covering 15 years and follows on from the first order received in 2019 for the Nordex Group to supply 24 megawatts for Istanbul-I, the first phase of the wind farm's construction.
The first turbine is currently being installed and the remaining turbines are under construction.
Delivery of the 39 turbines for the second construction phase is scheduled for late summer 2021.
The Nordex Group is one of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers and has installed more than 32 GW of wind power capacity in over 40 markets.
