The 50 MW Zeytineli wind farm will be installed on the hill rows of Alaçati-Çesme in the province of Izmir in the first quarter of 2013.
The coastal location is characterised by good wind conditions, allowing the turbines to generate a combined annual yield of around 165 GWh, equivalent to an above-average capacity factor of 38%, according to Nordex.
“I am delighted that we are able to continue our successful relations with Bilgin and see this as underscoring once more the efficiency of our local Turkish company as well the quality of our products,” says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, Nordex Chief Customer Officer.
The partnership between the two companies goes back to 2007. Nordex has already assembled three wind farms totalling 210 MW for Bilgin Enerji.
The financial partners for the wind farm are BayernLB and Euler Hermes Kreditversicherung. In addition to the conventional sale of electricity, Bilgin Enerji also plans to market carbon credits from the project.
