General Electric (GE) plans to increase its output of wind turbines in Turkey by supplying a new version of smart wind turbines with enhanced generation capacities, the company announced on Thursday.
With the new project, GE will boost its installed wind capacity in Turkey to over 1,000 megawatts, the press release says.
Turkey's current installed wind capacity is 4,718 megawatts.
GE will deliver 31 wind turbines with the latest technology to be utilized in the Dinar wind power plant located in the western city of Afyonkarahisar and owned by Guris, a company involved in construction, industry, energy and mining sectors.
The wind turbines, each equipped with 120 meter-long blades, will raise Dinar plant's generation capacity to 200 megawatts, from 115 megawatts.
With advanced qualities such as low sound emissions, control of power management and an efficient electricity transformer, the wind turbines can generate more energy, the company argues.
In accord with the agreement, GE will undertake the operation and maintenance of the plant for five years once it is commercially operational in December 2016.
