GE Renewable Energy has completed the installation and commissioning of the 53 MW Kirazli and 32 MW Meryem wind farms in Turkey. These two wind farms are part of a bigger order made a year ago with Turkerler and RT Enerjito supply five wind farms. In total, the five onshore wind farms (Kirazli, Meryem, Sile, Pamukova and Mahmut Sevket) feature forty-nine of GE’s 3 MW onshore wind turbines, with a total capacity of 158 MW will provide renewable energy to the region, powering the equivalent of 183,000 homes.

The Kirazli wind farm installation presented significant technical challenges as the site is located at the top of a hill and at the end of a narrow, winding 20-kilometer rural road crossing farms and villages.

Ramazan TAS, Chairman of the Board of RT Enerji and Kazim TURKER, Chairman of the Board of Turkerler stated in their joint statement:

'As RT-Turkerler joint venture, resulting synergy emerged in our work together with GE's headquarters and Turkey team is pleasing for our company. With this synergy, we are commissioning Meryem & Kirazli wind power plants. On the other hand, our portfolio of 158 MW, including these two projects, benefits from tariff guarantee (plus local content incentive).
