Nordex wins contract to build Kiyiköy wind farm in Turkey

CTBR Staff Writer Published 09 December 2014

Germany-based Nordex has secured a contract from Adali Holding to build the 45MW Kiyiköy wind farm in northern Turkey.


The contract requires Nordex to deliver and install 15 of its N117/3000 Generation Delta turbines at the wind farm, which is located in the Turkish province of Tekirdag.

The deal also includes a 10-year service contract and the turbines will have hub heights of 91m.

Upon completion, the wind farm will generate more than 170,000 MWh of energy per year with a capacity factor of over 43%.

Adali will be allowed to claim a higher feed-in tariff as Nordex will produce the anchor cages, rotor blades and towers in Turkey.

Adali currently operates hydropower and geothermal power stations and has additional wind energy licences for 150MW.

The company plans to install 300MW of renewable energy, mainly wind and hydro, at the Black Sea, in eastern Anatolia, south-eastern Anatolia, western Thrace and the Aegean regions.

Nordex has secured contracts to supply 215MW of wind turbines to projects in Turkey in 2014.

The company has recently secured contract to supply nine N117/2400 wind turbines for the Dilek Res project, which is close to the town of Kahramanmaras in south-east Anatolia.

The contract with Kale Enerji also includes a five-year premium service contract and the option of the delivery of an additional turbine for the wind farm.
