Norderstedt (euro adhoc) - Nordex AG has scored points again in Turkey: Power station operator Bilgin Enerji, Ankara, plans to install wind farms with up to 210 MW in the West of Turkey in the coming two years. Nordex is to supply the turbines from its proven N90 range with a nominal output of 2,500 kW each. The agreement with Bilgin Enerji entails a master agreement as well as a delivery contract which has already been secured in all points.

The firm delivery contract is for the "Mazi III" wind farm, which will be installed near the town of Cesme, to the West of Izmir. For this, Bilgin has ordered nine turbines from the N90 series from Nordex for delivery by June 2009. At 8.4 m/s the average wind speeds at the site promise an optimal yield: in the future, "Mazi III" will be able to supply more than 11,000 households a year with clean electricity. This means that around 45,000 tons of toxic greenhouse gases can be avoided annually.

The master agreement contains an obligation to supply 36 turbines for the "Aliağa" project as well as two options. Nordex is to supply 36 turbines for the "Aliağa" project, the first 18 next year, with the remainder following in 2010. The intended location is two kilometres to the South of the "Yuntdag" wind farm, which Nordex recently put on grid for Dost Enerji. The order from Dost, placed one year ago, marked the turbine manufacturer´s successful entry into the Turkish market.

In addition to this, the master agreement contains an option for 36 turbines for the "Soma" project, with delivery scheduled for 2010. The second option is for three additional turbines for the "Mazi III" wind farm.

A new customer, a firm order and wide-ranging master agreements - for Carsten Pedersen, COO Sales and Marketing at Nordex AG, a positive result after one year´s presence in Turkey: "Thanks the cutting-edge technology of our N90 we have rapidly become a force to be reckoned with. So we have perfect starting conditions on the Turkish wind energy market, which holds massive growth potential. And in Bilgin we have gained a customer with a large number of projects in the pipeline."
