GE Renewable Energy has landed a 51MW order from a customer in Turkey, entailing wind turbines of the Cypress platform to wind project Gazi-9.

Sanko Enerji placed the order for GE's 4.8MW units, including a ten-year service agreement.

"Gazi-9 Wind Farm represents one of the first Cypress orders for GE Renewable Energy in Turkey and shows clear demand in the country and around the world for GE’s latest onshore wind technology, with orders confirmed in Germany, Sweden and Australia. While the Cypress platform encompasses a range of turbines for use around the world, it is particularly well-suited to site conditions commonly found in Turkish wind energy projects," writes Yigit Erzan, GE Renewable Energy Turkey's head of sales and business development, in a press release.

Construction of the wind farm is set for completion during the fourth quarter of 2019 with planned commissioning in late October 2020.

The turbine blades will be made at LM Wind Power's factory in Izmi, Turkey, and the towers will also be produced in the country.
