The Nordex Group, one of the leading global suppliers of wind turbines, has recently announced that it has received a contract from Karayel Elektrik for installing 16 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines in the 76.8 Megawatt ‘Vize-2’ wind farm. Reportedly, the devices would be from the Delta4000 series and will be delivered in 4.8 MW operating mode. Moreover, the order includes a Premium Service contract which would span over ten years
Reports cite that the Vize-2 wind farm would be located near the city of Kirklareli, north of Turkey. The region is known to have an average annual wind speeds of 7.8 meters per second. With completion in 2020, the wind farm would produce nearly 240 GWh of clean power every year.
Speaking on the move, Patxi Landa, CSO, the Nordex Group, said that the Delta4000 series’ N149/4.0-4.5 turbines would allow the company to offer highly powerful and flexible series turbines to its customer.
