The German wind turbine manufacturer, Nordex Group, has received an order from Turkey to supply wind turbines for the 120-megawatt (MW) Evrencik Wind Farm located in the eastern Thrace region, the company announced Tuesday.
Nordex said in a statement that it will install 27 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines for its long-standing customer of the Nordex Group, Evrencik Elektrik.
The contract also includes a 15-year premium service agreement, the company noted. Installation of the first turbines on site in the province of Kirklareli in eastern Thrace is due to commence in October this year.
Nordex will source the rotor blades, anchor cages, towers and generators for the 27 turbines locally, according to the German manufacturer.
'This means that – like all the Nordex Group’s customers in Turkey – Evrencik Elektrik benefits from a higher feed-in tariff as the components are produced in the country,' the company stressed.
“I am delighted that with this major order from our long-standing customer Evrencik we have been able to follow on from last year’s sales successes in Turkey with a volume of 690 MW”, Chief Sales Officer of the Nordex Group Patxi Landa, was quoted as saying.
