Nordex now also selling Generation Delta in Turkey

Contracts for a total of 37.6 MW for Turkey signed / total order intake from Turkey amounts to 160 MW in 2013

Hamburg, 14 January 2014. In the fourth quarter of 2013 the Nordex Group has been awarded three new contracts for a combined capacity of 37.6 MW in Turkey. Included in these are the first six N117/3000 generation Delta turbines for this growth market. The second contract also marks a new development as it is the first time that a customer from Turkey has ordered four N117/2400 light wind turbines.

In summer 2014, Nordex will be supplying six of its N117/3000 turbines for the 18-MW Cesme RES project, which is located on a peninsular close to Izmir. Nordex only launched the N117/3000 in spring 2013. This turbine is specifically designed for medium-strong wind conditions and will achieve an above-average capacity factor of over 38% at Cesme RES. The customer and future owner of the wind farm is ABK Cesme Enerji Üretim A.S., which is already active in renewable energies.

Named Aliaga RES, the second project is also located in the Izmir region and comprises four N117/2400 turbines. However, with average speeds of 7.0 m/s, this location has IEC III wind conditions. Even so, this wind farm will also reach a capacity factor of around 36% thanks to its technical configuration. The investor here is Akca Holding, with activities in textile, energy, food and automotive sectors, committed to sustainable business operations. Construction is scheduled for summer 2014.

In addition, returning customer Karesi Enerji has placed an order with Nordex for four N100/2500 turbines to extend the 45-MW Akres wind farm. Installed by Nordex in 2011, the farm currently has 18 N90/2500 turbines.

Says Nordex Management Board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard: ‘These contracts fully vindicate our product strategy. With our products we are able to guarantee customers optimum yields in all customary locations. We are also pleased to be able to continue on our successful course in Turkey.’ To date, Nordex has installed a capacity of 710 MW in this country and received 160 MW of orders in Turkey in the course of 2013.
