The Siemens Gamesa company said it has contracted the delivery of the first of its new 3.3 MW wind turbines for two wind farms in Turkey. The wind turbines of a total power of 118 MW will be supplied for the Baglar and Ardicli wind farms in the Konya region.

A statement said that this was the company’s first order from the Turkish investor Sancak Enerji and is the first order for its 3.3-MW turbines which are designed to minimize the cost of producing energy from the wind.

Under the contract, Siemens Gamesa will install 36 wind turbines at the Baglar and Ardicli wind farms and will be in charge of their operation and maintenance for a period of five years. The casings for the turbines will be assembled in Spain while the pillars and blades will be made in Turkey by local companies.

Siemens Gamesa said it would install 20 of its G132-3.3 MW turbines (66 MW) at the Baglar wind farm and another 16 of the same turbines (52 MW) at the Ardicli facility.

The G132-3.3 MW turbines are reported to guarantee maximum output at medium and medium-low wind speed sites. The turbine is made with four different tower heights, ranging from 84 to 134 metres which allows it to be adapted to the specific requirements and winds of any region.

The Siemens Gamesa company was formed early in April 2017 when the Siemens Wind Power company merged with Gamesa. Both those companies were present in Turkey on their own and have installed turbines producing more than 550 MW of power in that country since 2010.

Earlier Siemens Gamesa said it had contracts to deliver turbines of a total power of 112 MW for the German EnBW Albatros offshore wind farm in the North Sea and turbines of a power of 752 MW for the Borssele 1 and 2 offshore wind farms being developed in the Netherlands.
