Nordex has received a contract to install ten turbines for the Bandirma III wind farm in West Turkey, it has been announced.

Nordex will be constructing the 25MW wind farm in flat grasslands close to the port city of Bandirma for construction company Makinsan.

With wind speeds averaging 7.4 m/s, the farm is expected to achieve an annual yield of around 72 gWh. This represents the equivalent energy consumption of around 36,000 Turkish households a year.

Nordex first entered the Turkish wind power market in April 2007 with the Yuntdag 42.5MW wind farm.
