The agreement includes supply and commissioning of turbines to several Turkish wind farms and a 15-year service agreement. It commits the consortium to construction of at least 700 MW of wind by 2022 and the construction of a nacelle factory in order to meet the local supply requirements established by the Turkish authorities. An R&D centre will also be constructed.
The other members of the consortium are local infrastructure company Kalyon Enerji and Turkish investment company Turkerler Holding.
Siemens Gamesa has installed over 700 MW of its turbines in Turkey since entering the Turkish market for the first time in 2010.
