Nordex has secured three contracts totaling 64.2MW to install its N117/2400 and the N117/3000 turbines in Turkey.

Under the first contract, awarded by Erdem Holding, the company will supply seven N117/3000 Generation Delta turbines for the Odemis wind farm.

The contract also includes providing premium-service for a minimum period of five years.

Located south-east of Izmir, the Odemis wind farm will be equipped with N117/3000 turbines with a height of 91m.

The rotor blades, towers and anchor cages will be produced in Turkey. Under the Turkish feed-in legislation, this will enable Erdem Holding to claim a higher feed-in tariff for the project.

As part of the second contract, awarded by Edincik Enerji, the company will expand the 30MW Edincik wind farm to 56.4MW.

Nordex will provide 11 N117/2400 turbines for the Edincik wind farm located on the southern coast of the Marmara Sea.

Back in 2010 and 2012, the customer had ordered Nordex turbines for wind farms in the same region. The contract included a Nordex premium service agreement for six years.

The third contract was awarded by Bursa Temiz Enerji for the extension of the existing 25 MW Bandirma III wind farm.

Nordex will supply seven N117/2400 turbines that will expand the wind farm close to the port city of Bandirma in the Marmara Region to 41.8MW.

The extension of Bandirma III is the second wind farm project from Bursa Temiz Enerji with Nordex.
