ENERCON, Enerjisa Üretim to Install 1000 MW Onshore Wind in Turkey Enercon Signs 6 MW Turbine Agreement with Enerjisa Üretim

Wind energy player ENERCON has announced that it has joined forces with Enerjisa Üretim, a joint venture of the E.ON – SABANCI Holding, which delves in energy generation, for the implement the YEKA RES 2 wind energy project in Turkey.

ENERCRON said that the tender will play a major role in increasing the clean energy capacity in Turkey. Within its scope, ENERCON and Enerjisa Üretim will install 1,000 MW of onshore wind energy capacity together.

ENERCON held that it will be supplying the wind energy converter technology and deliver a total of 240 E-138 EP3 E2 WECs within the next four years.

ENERCON already has a stable footprint with Sales, Project Management, Service, Production and Supply Chain in Turkey for the last 25 years.

The wind energy project is located in regions with the highest wind energy potential in Turkey. Wind farms will be constructed in Çanakkale (250 MW), Balıkesir (250 MW), Aydın (250 MW), and Muğla (250 MW). ENERCON held that as a result of its 25 years of presence in Turkey, it is producing or sourcing all major components for the E-138 EP3 WEC from its well-established supply network in the country.

Uli Schulze Südhoff, CCO, ENERCON, stated, “Our wind energy converters are recognized as ‘best in their class’ and have proven to be extremely reliable at Turkish sites. We have a long history within the Turkish onshore wind market and are one of the pioneers of the sector. This turbine supply agreement also underlines the significance Turkey has for us on a global level, as a target market for generation and for our supply chain. The country will remain one of our core markets in the future too.”

An IEA report mentions that the RE capacity of Turkey is expected to grow 64 per cent or 33.8 GW in next five years and it will be one of the 10 top RE markets in the world.
