Danish manufacturer Vestas has won a contract to build a 52MW wind power plant in Turkey.
The Kavali RES project, to be installed in the southern province of Balikesir, is estimated to generate around 193,000MWh of energy and cut emissions by more than 95,000 tons every year. It will provide enough renewable electricity to power more than 390,000 homes in Turkey.
The contract provided by Erciyas Celik Boru includes the delivery, installation and commissioning of the power plant and is expected to be commissioned by the second quarter of 2014.
Olcayto Yigit, General Manager at Vestas Turkey said: “We are glad to have the opportunity to support Erciyas Celik Boru in their first wind power investment in the country. We welcome their interest and commitment to wind energy that will support Turkey in reaching its ambitious target for renewable energy sources.”
Last month the wind manufacturer also won its “largest ever” wind order in South Africa.
