Danish firm Vestas has bagged a 33MW wind turbine order in Turkey.

It will provide 10 turbines for the Fuat RES wind farm being built in the city of Izmir as well as a five-year service.

The order is the fifth and the final one from the 207MW deal signed in February between Vestas and the joint venture of German utility EnBW and Turkey’s Borusan.

Once completed, the wind farm will generate enough electricity to power more than 185,000 households as well as cut 51,500 tonnes of carbon emissions every year.

Marco Graziano, President of Vestas Mediterranean said: “Our goal is to secure the lowest cost of energy and best possible performance for our customers throughout the turbines’ lifetime.”

Delivery of the turbines is expected in the final quarter of this year, with commissioning scheduled for 2015.
