Wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has received an order for 14 of its units to be installed at the Amasya wind power project in Turkey.

Sehzade Enerji, a subsidiary of GNCR Holding and Eurowind Holdings, has placed the order.

And Vestas will accordingly be delivering its V126-3.3 MW turbines for total capacity of 46.2 megawatts beginning the first quarter of 2016.

The V126-3.3 MW turbines are designed to optimize wind energy conversion in low-wind, high-turbulence sites.

Besides supply of turbines, Vestas will also undertake the installation of the turbines. The company will also be providing five-years’ service of the machines as part of the deal.

The wind project is expected to be commissioned in the second quarter of 2016 and on completion is expected to produce about 155,000 MWh annually.

Vestas, which has been operating in Turkey since 1984, has installed 846 MW of wind power capacity in the country. It is the equivalent of about 23 percent of the total installed capacity of the country.
