Nordex supplies 27.5 MW wind farm in Turkey

 By Kari Williamson

The wind turbines, which are optimised for medium wind speeds, will be installed this autumn on a mountain ridge at an altitude of 1500 m.

With an average wind speed of 6.9 m/s, the wind farm is expected to produce 60 GWh annually.

The wind turbine towers will be produced by Tektug Elektrik's Ciltug AS.

“This order is a major success in the growing Turkish market as this is the first wind farm for Tektug Elektrik. And our new customer has ambitious plans to expand. In addition to this, our pilot project is located in the east of Anatolia. This also offers opportunities for follow-up projects,” says Ayhan Gök, Managing Director of Nordex Turkey.

Tektug Elektrik Group specialises in sustainable energy projects and already operates several hydroelectric power stations.
