Press Release:

Vestas secures 26 MW order in Turkey

The contract comprises the supply and installation of the wind turbines, along with a 10-year AOM 4000 service agreement to optimise uptime, performance, and energy production. Turbine delivery is planned for the third quarter of 2016, whilst commissioning is expected in the fourth quarter of the year. 

Olcayto Yigit, General Manager of Vestas Turkey, adds: “Vestas continues to drive down the cost of energy, and this project with Elfa Elektrik Üretim A.Ş. is no different.  With its 126-metre rotor diameter that enables greater wind capture and thus higher annual energy production, the V126-3.3 MW turbine model is designed for low- to mid-speed wind regimes and delivers market-leading cost of energy”.

Vestas installed Turkey’s first wind turbine in 1984 and has since then delivered close to 1.2 GW of wind power capacity to Turkey. In January 2008, Vestas established an office in Istanbul and today also has three warehouses and service locations in the country. By developing a top-class local value chain in Turkey, Vestas and the expansion of Turkey’s wind capacity continue to create local jobs and capabilities.
