Vestas nets 158MW Turkey order

Vestas has formally booked the second – and by far the largest – order under the 207MW framework agreement it signed earlier this year with Germany’s EnBW and Turkey’s Borusan, for wind projects across Turkey.

Vestas on Friday chalked up firm and unconditional supply-and-installation orders for 48 of its V112-3.3MW turbines – worth 158MW of capacity – for the Mut, Harmanlik and Koru RES projects.

The turbines will be delivered in late 2014 and installed in the second quarter of 2015.

In February the framework agreement was announced by EnBW, a German utility, which says the 207MW onshore wind development is the largest in its history – and the largest ever in the emerging Turkish wind market.

Along with the 30MW order Vestas recorded in March as part of the framework agreement, EnBW and Borusan, a Turkish holding company, have now signed off on 188MW – leaving less than 20MW in play.

The latest order brings Vestas’s total year-to-date order intake to 1.79GW.
