Turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa has finalised an up to 1GW turbine deal in Turkey.

The company along with partners Kalyon Enerji and Turkerler Holding secured the rights to build projects in a summer 2017 auction.

An agreement has now been signed covering supply, installation and commissioning of turbines across several wind farms, as first reported in the subscriber-only reNEWS European Onshore quarterly.

At least 700MW will be built by 2022 and could include an 15-year power purchase deal.

Siemens Gamesa will build a nacelle factory to meet local supply needs as well as an R&D centre.
