GE Renewable Energy has announced it has been selected by Fina Enerji to supply 52 of its 3 MW platform onshore wind turbines for four wind farms in Turkey with a total capacity of 193 MW.
The projects – Baglama, Tayakadin, Yalova and Pazarkoy – will provide enough renewable power for 195,000 homes, saving up to 650,000 tons of CO2. The 156 blades will be manufactured at GE’s LM Wind Power factory in Bergama, Turkey where GE has more than 550 employees. Towers will also be produced in the country. The project also includes a 10-year servicing agreement.
GE already has an installed base of 1.2 GW of wind energy in Turkey and has built 500 wind turbines built in the country, including the 350 MW of onshore wind energy projects that Fina Enerji and GE Renewable Energy have built together.
