Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy signed an agreement securing the right to implement up to 1 gigawatt (GW) of wind capacity in Turkey, the company announced Tuesday.

Siemens Gamesa, Kalyon Enerji and Turkerler Holding were awarded wind capacity as a part of Turkey’s first Renewable Energy Resource Zone Project (YEKA) in August 2017.

Under the terms of the agreement, Siemens Gamesa’s obligations includes the supply, installation and commissioning of turbines in several wind farms, as well as a 15-year service agreement.

In addition, the agreement contemplates the offtake of the power produced under a 15-year power purchase agreement and a commitment on the part of the consortium to build at least 700 megawatts (MW) of wind capacity by 2022.

Lastly, the agreement includes the construction of a nacelle factory to meet the local supply requirements established by the Turkish authorities, as well as a Research and Development Center.

Siemens Gamesa has installed turbines with over 700 MW of capacity in Turkey since entering this market for the first time in 2010. AA
