Bak Enerji Uretimi A. Ş. is buying equipment for its wind project in Turkey from Vestas Wind Systems A/S. The order for the Yahyalı project comprises the supply and installation of 25 of V126-3.3 MW wind turbine units as well as a 10-year active output management (AOM) 4000 service agreement, Vestas said.

Delivery of 83 MW of generating capacity is planned for the first quarter of 2016, while commissioning is scheduled for the second half of the year. Vestas said the 126-meter rotor model is one of its best performing ones on low-wind sites. Upon completion, the Yahyalı wind farm is expected to produce about 303,000 MWh annually, which corresponds to the residential electricity consumption of approximately 182,000 people in Turkey, the press release said.

„Turkey’s power demand has significantly increased due to rapid economic growth and a larger population, so the Turkish wind energy sector is expected to become one of the largest wind power markets in the world. Vestas is strongly committed to this market and we are pleased to contribute with our technologies and expertise to drive down the cost of energy in Turkey,” says Vestas Mediterranean’s president Marco Graziano.

Vestas has been present in Turkey since 1984 and has installed 846 MW of wind power capacity in the country. Vestas has erected wind farms in Istanbul, Balıkesir, Manisa, Çanakkale, İzmir, Afyonkarahisar, Hatay, Mersin, Kayseri, Sivas and Aydın.
