In December 2015 Nordex signed contracts with its long-standing customer Bilgin Enerji for four projects with a total volume of 100 MW. All of the 33 turbines ordered belong to the Delta series, the latest product fleet Nordex is offering on the market.
The first project is an extension of the “Bandirma” wind farm in Balikesir, a province in the west of Turkey. For this project Nordex is supplying five of its N100/3300 strong-wind turbines. The second project, “Bergama”, is situated in Manisa, in western Anatolia. Bilgin Enerji will be adding ten N117/3000s to this wind farm, which Nordex will install in March this year. There are plans to build a further ten turbines of this type in the “Soma” wind farm, which is also located in Manisa, in July. The fourth project, “Mazi”, is situated in Izmir near to the Turkish Aegean coast. Nordex will be supplying eight N117/3000s for this also in July.
Bilgin Enerji is an important partner for Nordex in Turkey and the manufacturer has been working together with Bilgin for more than eight years now. The Bilgin Enerji Holding has been developing, building and operating hydroelectric and wind energy projects for 25 years, which puts them as one of the top renewable power generation companies in Turkey. The “Bergama” extension, which is being financed by BayernLB, also shows the good business relationship between the bank and Nordex, which forms the basis of various wind park projects with Nordex turbines worldwide. By repetitively being chosen by a large number of several investors including important banks in Turkey, Nordex established a good collaboration in the Turkish wind energy market over the last few years.
