Şehzade Enerji, a subsidiary of GNCR Holding and Eurowind Holdings, chose Vestas Wind Systems A/S of Denmark to supply V126 turbines for its Amasya wind power project in Turkey.

The order comprises the supply and installation of the 14 turbines as well as a five-year service agreement, Vestas said. The delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2016, whilst turbine commissioning is scheduled for the second quarter of 2016. Upon completion, the power plant is expected to produce about 155 GWh annually, which corresponds to the annual residential electricity consumption of approximately 65,000 Turkish households, the press release said.

„We are pleased to partner for the first time with Şehzade Enerji and to share with them our expertise and capabilities to successfully undertake this project. Turkey plans to expand its wind power capacity fivefold by 2023, so driving down the cost of energy is critical. Vestas’s cost-effective and innovative wind energy solutions are helping to reach that goal,” says Marco Graziano, president of Vestas Mediterranean.

Vestas has been present in Turkey since 1984 and has installed 846 MW of wind power capacity in the country, corresponding to approximately 23% of the total installed capacity of the country, according to the company’s website.

In May, Bak Enerji Uretimi AŞ placed an order from Vestas for the supply and installation of 25 turbines of the same model for the Yahyalı wind power project as well as a 10-year service agreement.
