Nordex seals trio of Turkish wind orders

German windpower group Nordex has clinched three orders for for a total of 44.4 MW in Turkey.

And the company has said that because much of the equipment will be manufactured locally, it will qualify for higheNordex turbiner feed-in tariffs.

Nordex will supply six Generation Delta N117/3000 turbines at the Urla wind farm in Izmir for Sancak Enerji; nine Generation Gamma N117/2400 turbines at the Yenihisar wind farm for Yeni Enerji; and two N117/2400 turbines for the Pitane wind farm in Izmir for Bicakcilar Enerji.

Nordex plans to start all three projects between spring and summer 2015. The towers and some rotor blades are being sourced locally, which means all three projects will be eligible for higher feed-in tariffs, because if blades and towers are manufactured in Turkey the feed-in tariff of $7.3 cents per kWh is topped up with an additional $1.4 cent per kWh.
