Since entering the wind energy market in Turkey in 2007, the Nordex Group has installed more than 2.03 GW of wind capacity in the country, representing a market share of almost 27 percent. And now the company has again received orders for wind turbine deliveries for projects worth 248 MW.

The first two orders have been received from the firms’ long-standing customer Boydak Enerji. Nordex Group will supply 21 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines with a rated capacity of 4.8 MW each for the “Ömerli” wind farm. On top of this, Boydak Enerji has ordered an additional 22 N117/3675 turbines for the “Sibel” project. The future 110.8 MW “Ömerli” wind farm will be built near Istanbul. The Nordex Group will build “Sibel”, with a total capacity of 80.9 MW, in the Aegean region between Izmir and Manisa. Both orders include Premium Service for the machines for a period of 10 years.

“Since 2013, Boydak Enerji has been using turbines from the Nordex Group in the Canta RES wind farm. By once again opting for our technology, as well as for our latest turbine generation, our partner has shown that our turbines meet its expectations,” comments Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.

In addition to these two contracts, a utility has ordered 14 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines with a rated capacity of 4.8 MW for a 67 MW wind farm in the Marmara region. The order includes a Premium Service of the turbines for a period of 10 years as well.

In October, the group had reported that in the third quarter of 2019 its customers ordered 436 wind turbines with a total output of 1,700 megawatts (1.7 GW) for projects in 14 countries, almost doubling its order intake from the same quarter last year which recorded orders worth 974 MW.

As per the data provided by the firm, Europe accounted for 60 percent of orders from July to September, the USA for 28 percent and Latin America for 12 percent. At 49 percent, the latest generation turbine types – the Delta4000 platform – made up almost half of the order volume in the third quarter.

In addition to the projects already announced separately, the Nordex Group received major orders from Sweden, the USA, Brazil, Mexico and the UK in September. Overall, order intake (excluding the services business) in the first nine months of 2019 thus rose to 4.7 gigawatts, exceeding the total order intake for the same period last year by 1.6 GW.
