Vestas wins 46MW wind turbine supply contract in Turkey

CTBR Staff Writer Published 13 July 2015

Vestas has won a contract to supply turbines for the 46.2MW Amasya wind power project in Turkey.


Under the contract with Sehzade Enerji, Vestas will supply and install 14 of its V126-3.3MW turbines that are suitable for low-wind, high turbulence sites.

The deal includes a five-year service Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 services.

Vestas expects to start deliveries during the first quarter of 2016, while commissioning is planned to take place in the second quarter of that year.

After completion, the Amasya wind power plant will generate around 155,000MWh of energy per year, enough to power about 65,000 local homes.

Vestas president of Mediterranean Marco Graziano said: "Turkey plans to expand its wind power capacity fivefold by 2023, so driving down the cost of energy is critical.

"Vestas' cost-effective and innovative wind energy solutions are helping to reach that goal."

Since 1984, Vestas has installed 846MW of wind power capacity in Turkey, equivalent to about 23% of the country's total installed capacity.

The company has delivered wind energy in 73 countries. Wind power from over 54,200 turbines of Vestas currently reduces more than 60 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
