Vestas Receives 44 MW Order For The Kangal RES Wind Power Plant In Turkey

Kangal Elektrik Uretim A.S. has signed an agreement to construct a wind power plant using 22 V100-2.0 MW wind turbines. The company’s first wind project will be ready for turbine installation in the first quarter of 2014.

The 44 MW Kangal RES wind power plant will be installed in the Sivas province, Turkey. The contract includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind power plant, including an eight-year full scope availability agreement, AOM4000.

The wind turbines are scheduled to be delivered in the first quarter of 2014, and to be commissioned by the third quarter of the same year.

Olcayto Yigit, General Manager, Vestas Turkey, says: “This new order reflects the confidence in our proven products and established service organisation in the Turkish market and we are happy to partner with Kangal Elektrik Uretim A.S. for their very first wind project. We will secure cost-effective, efficient, and reliable wind power solutions, all supported by an experienced team of local specialists.”

The Kangal RES wind power plant will have an estimated annual production of 130,000 MWh per year, which will save the environment from around 60,000 tons of CO2 emissions on an annual basis. Furthermore, it will provide enough electricity to cover the residential electricity consumption of more than 217,000 people in Turkey.
