German wind turbine supplier Nordex is awarded three new contracts for a total of 47 multi-megawatt turbines in Turkey. The combined installed capacity of the three projects comes to 178.8 MW.

Nordex has announced that it will supply turbines of the N131/3600 and N131/3900 series to   “important existing customer” without naming them. Delivery for the first wind farm is to start in September.

In addition to supplying the turbines, Nordex will also service the wind parks under multi-year contracts.

The German company is one of the leading suppliers of wind power in Turkey. Nordex says it has a market share of some 30% in the country. At the same time, Turkey, along with France and Sweden is the strongest individual Nordex’s market in Europe.

In November last year, Nordex Group received the 30 MW contract from Turkish company Umut Insaat for installation of nine wind turbines in the Province of Izmir. That was the sixth project the German company scored for the same customer in Turkey.

At the end of 2017, Turkey had nearly 6.9 GW of installed wind power generation capacity, after adding 766 MW in the year, according to a report by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).
