Nordex AG is making steady progress in Turkey. After opening a local company based in Istanbul in April this year, Nordex has bagged “a firmly financed contract for a total volume of 90 MW”.
Starting in winter 2009, Nordex will be constructing the Brahma wind farm comprising 36 N90/2500 turbines for power station operator Bilgin Enerji.
The company said Bergama will be the largest Nordex wind farm in Turkey and one of the largest in the country. In all, 36 wind turbines are being installed at heights of up to 650 meters, where high wind speeds averaging around 9 m/s prevail.
Norded shared that the Turkish company will be calling down the turbines under the terms of a master contract signed with Nordex in spring 2008 and providing for a total volume of 210 MW. It has additionally booked a premium service package.
Bergama is the second project on which Bilgin and Nordex are working together: The Mazi III wind farm, comprising nine N90/2500 turbines, is currently being constructed.
Nordex is planning to feed up to 200 MW of new power into Turkey’s national grid by the end of 2009.
