Nordex wins 48MW Turkey contract

Nordex has received a 48MW order for a Turkish wind project.

The German manufacturer will deliver 20 of its N117/2400 turbines to Erdem Holding's Bagarasi project in Aydin, southeast of Izmir, near the Aegean coast.

The turbines will be mounted on towers with a hub height of 91 metres, with a design specifically configured for locations with light average wind speeds.

The contract, which includes a premium-service contract for a minimum of five years, will take Nordex's installed total in Turkey to 1.04GW. Bagarasi is scheduled to begin operating next year.
