Capacity was awarded in the provinces of Balikesir, Canakkale, Aydin and Mugla on Turkey’s western coast.

The ceiling price for the tender was set at $55/MWh.

Enerjisa secured the Canakkale tender with a bid of $36.7/MWh and Aydin with $45.6/MWh.

Enercon won the Balikesir tender at a price of $35.3/MWh (€31.8/MWh), and the Mugla tender at $40/MWh.

The Germany company told Windpower Monthly it had not yet decided which turbines it would use at the future wind farms, but planned to use models from its EP3 and EP5 platforms.

An Enercon spokesman added that the company planned to begin developing the projects alone, but was "open for cooperation with local and international partners".

This was the second wind tender through the auction system known as Yeka — the Turkish acronym for "renewable-energy designated area".

In the first, in August 2017, a consortium composed of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) and local firms Kalyon Enerji and Turkerler Holding won the right to build up to 1GW in wind capacity at a price of $34.8/MWh.
