Turkish wind trio enters construction


In Short : The phrase “Turkish wind trio enters construction” suggests that three wind projects or companies in Turkey are now progressing into the construction phase. This indicates an advancement in the development of wind energy projects in Turkey, contributing to the country’s efforts to expand its renewable energy capacity.

In Detail : Ronesans Group’s Germany subsidiary is delivering the facilities which will feature Nordex turbines

Germany’s Heitkamp Industrial Solutions is installing wind turbines for projects in Turkey totalling 189MW, being developed by its parent company Ronesans Group.

Heitkamp is responsible for the technical and commercial management of the three wind projects, as EPC contractor, with all three expected to enter operation by the end of this year.

Nordex turbines are being supplied for the projects.

In the Sivas region, seven turbines will be installed at the 49MW R3-Sivas 1-2 RES wind farm, while eight turbines have been ordered for the 56MW R3-Corum 1 RES project in Çorum.

The largest of the three orders involves the delivery of 12 turbines with a total output of 84MW for the R3-Malatya 1 RES wind farm in the province of Malatya in eastern Anatolia.

“Our focus is on high-quality project management in the industrial construction sector, enabling environmentally friendly and economically viable construction projects.

“At a time when resource scarcity and dependence on critical raw materials are becoming increasingly problematic, we are determined to break new ground, forging alliances with other players in the industry,” said Christopher Hambleton, CEO of Heitkamp Industrial Solutions.

Emre Hatem, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ronesans Enerji, said: “Ronesans Enerji already has a total installed capacity of 166MW through its hydropower projects.

“We are proud to join forces with Nordex to expand our investments in renewable energy in Turkey and strengthen our commitment to the country’s net zero targets.”

“In close co-operation with the renowned wind turbine manufacturer Nordex and our German subsidiary Heitkamp Industrial Solutions, we are confident that we can contribute significantly to the reduction of CO2 emissions in Turkey.

“With these three new projects with Nordex, our total installed capacity will grow to 355MW.

“Our goal is to build a 100% renewable energy portfolio and become one of the top three green energy companies in Turkey.”

The N163/6.X turbines used, mounted on 113 metre high steel towers with a rotor diameter of 163 metres, are the most powerful turbines currently available in Turkey.

Patxi Landa, Chief Sales Officer of Nordex, said: “We are proud to consolidate our position as market leader in Turkey. The N163/6.X turbine variant is particularly well suited to achieving high yields in this low-wind region.

“With our latest and highly efficient technology, we are supporting Turkey’s clear commitment to significantly increase the share of renewable energies in the energy mix.”
