GE will supply 31 of its 1.6-100 wind turbines for Fina Enerji’s Tayakadin wind project in Istanbul (Turkey), which will supply enough clean, wind-generated electricity to meet the needs of more than 14,000 Turkish households.  The project will mark the first European installation of the GE 1.6-100 machine, which offers the highest efficiency of any wind turbine in its class, the company says.

The 50-megawatt Tayakadin project supports the Turkish government’s plans to increase the country’s wind energy production to 20,000 megawatts by the year 2023. Turkey has one of the most favourable locations in Europe for wind energy development, with a potential wind generation capacity of about 48,000 megawatts. Much of that potential remains untapped, as the country’s existing wind farms produce about 1,800 megawatts.

“GE’s 1.6-100 technology builds on the broad experience of our 1.5 and 2.5 megawatt series, with more than 17,500 of those units installed today,” said Stephan Ritter, general manager of GE’s Renewable Energy business in Europe. “Featuring a 100-meter rotor diameter and 80-meter hub height, the 1.6-100 provides the highest capacity factor of any wind turbine for class 3 sites.”

Fina Enerji currently has 35 units of GE 2.5-100 wind turbines in operation at two wind power plant sites in Izmir and Hatay provinces for a total capacity of 87.5 MW.  Tayakadin, near the booming city of Istanbul, is the third site where Fina Enerji will employ GE wind turbines.

In addition to the wind turbines, GE will supply commissioning and technical advisory services for the Tayakadin project. FINA will do the installation and civil works of the project. The wind turbines will be shipped from GE’s Salzbergen, Germany facility by the end of 2012, with completion of the project expected by the first quarter of 2013.

Marmara Region to Dominate Turkish Wind Power Industry Landscape

Abundance of wind resources and presence of large number of wind farms resulting in dominance of Marmara Region.

Marmara Region has emerged as one of the most sought after destination for setting up wind farms in Turkey, according to a recent research report “Turkey Wind Power Sector Outlook 2016” published by KuicK Research. The Marmara Region accounted for more than 50% of overall cumulative wind power installed capacity and wind power generation in Turkey.
As per the report findings, one of the foremost reasons for dominance of Marmara Region is the presence of the high scale of wind power density and favorable wind speed as compare to other regions in Turkey. The annual mean wind power density in Marmara Region is estimated around 51.91 W/m2 with annual mean wind speed at 3.29 m/s, which is highest as compare to any other region in Turkey. The wind availability in Marmara region is estimated to be twice that of some of the countries in European region. The wind power potential is calculated between 6.0-7.0 m/s in Marmara, Western Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean coasts, 5.0-6.0 m/s in West Mediterranean coasts, 7.0-8.5 m/s in North western Aegean coasts and 4.5-5.5 m/s in inner areas.
The presence of abundance of wind power resources in Marmara Region has resulted in double digit growth of Turkey wind power installed capacity in recent years. Marmara Region will continue to dominate the Turkish wind power sector landscape in coming years as increasing number of companies will continue to invest there.
“Turkey Wind Power Sector Outlook 2016” reports gives detailed overview on the various aspects related to wind power sector in Turkey. It helps readers to analyze the current & emerging trends in wind power sector, regulatory and policy framework, wind power resource and potential by region and province, details of operating wind farms and competitive landscape.
