A consortium of Siemens Gamesa and Turkey’s Türkerler and Kalyon Enerji holdings won a billion-dollar wind energy tender on 3 August, offering the lowest price to the state with US$ 3.48 cents per kilowatt hour.  

Eight consortia participated in the 1,000MW wind power project tender on July 27. The winning consortium is expected to make an investment of more than US$ 1 billion in the project. Around 65 per cent of the project will be produced locally in Turkey, while 35 per cent of the necessary equipment will be imported. The turbines will be installed by early 2019.
