Danish turbine manufacturer Vestas has received an order for a wind project in Turkey.

It will provide 25 turbines for the ‘Yahyali Wind Farm’ next year which has a capacity of 83MW.

The project is expected to produce 303,000 MWh per year – equivalent to the electricity consumption of 182,000 people.

The order also involves the supply and installation of the turbines as well as a 10-year management, states the company.

Marco Graziano, President of Vestas said: “Turkish wind energy sector is expected to become one of the largest wind power markets in the world. Vestas is strongly committed to this market and we are pleased to contribute with our technologies and expertise to drive down the cost of energy in Turkey.”
