GE and Fina Enerji Team Up to Encourage Wind Energy Growth in Western Turkey



GE has signed a new agreement with Fina Enerji to offer 43 wind turbines for four new projects in western Turkey. This new announcement was made by both the companies during the first annual Turkish Wind Energy Congress.

As per the new agreement, GE is assigned to offer nine 1.6-100 wind turbines for the Kizilcaterzi Wind Farm, 10, 1.6-100 machines for the Karadere Wind Farm, 14, 2.75-100 wind turbines for the Sadilli Wind Farm and 10, 2.75-100 machines for the Salman Wind Farm.

The .6-100 wind turbine from GE is backed by proven advanced technology and an evolutionary design, which is said to encourage Turkey’s energy independence while supporting the country’s investment in domestic renewable energy.

“As these new projects demonstrate, our latest wind turbine technology continues to play a significant role in the development of wind power in Turkey and throughout the region,” said Vic Abate, vice president of GE’s renewable energy business. “We are pleased to work with Fina Enerji to help bring clean, domestic electricity to Turkey.”

These new wind projects is said to support 97 megawatts of capacity to the country’s electricity grid, enough clean energy to power 27,000 Turkish homes. In addition, the Turkish government announced that it will enhance the country’s wind energy production to 20,000 megawatts by the year 2023.

“Using such machines with advanced technology will not only improve the capacity factors and capital productivities but also help to decrease our nation’s dependency on foreign sources of energy,” said Sancar Saracoglu, executive committee member of Fina Enerji.

GE has been offering its customers with a broad array of power generation, energy delivery and water process technologies to solve their challenges locally.
