Enercon said that except nacelles all the main components of the wind turbine will be produced in Turkey.

Enercon Region Central Asia, Middle East and Africa (CAMEA) Sales & After Sales director Tayfun Bayraktar said: ‘With 25 years of experience and our well-established supply chain network, we developed the E-138 EP3 turbine type as the most highly localised wind turbine in Turkey.

“As of today, we installed and commissioned more than 150 E-138 EP3 in the country.”

Previously, the German company secured turbine supply and installation contract for 1GW Yeka Res 2 project.

Last October, Enercon and Enerjisa Uretim, a joint venture of E.ON and Sabanci Holding reached an agreement to install 1GW of wind energy capacity at the Yeka Res II project in Turkey.
