Vestas has received an order for 20 wind turbines from Steag for the Suloglu wind power plant in Edirne, Turkey.

The Danish wind equipment manufacturer will be responsible for the supply, installation, and commissioning of the V126-3.3MW wind turbines at the facility, for a total capacity of 66 MW.

This particular model features structural shell blades and has a hub height of 117m, making them suitable for the low-wind sites.

Expected to be operational by the end of 2015, the Suloglu facility will produce around 234,000MWh of wind power annually, enough for over 40,000 Turkish residents in the west of the country.

In addition to the turbine deliveries, the deal also includes a ten-year full-scope AOM 4000 (Active Output Management) service and availability agreement to maximise the wind turbines’ performance and bolster the customer’s business case certainty.

This is fourth order for Vestas this year from Turkey, but the first one for its V126-3.3 MW turbine models, the company said in a statement.
