10 MW going up on Bozcaada island

A 10 MW wind plant is to be built on the Turkish island of Bozcaada off the west coast at Izmir. The development is a "build operate transfer" (BOT) project and the 17, 600 kW wind turbines are being supplied by German Enercon. Enercon will build and operate the wind farm for a specified number of years before selling it to the operating company, Bores Bozcaada Ruzgar Enerji Santrali. The wind station is expected to come on-line in the second quarter of 2000. Turkey's first major wind farm was commissioned a year ago on the Cesme Peninsula, a 7 MW project of Vestas turbines. Enercon developed the country's first wind cluster, three Enercon 500 kW turbines near Izmir, in March 1998 to supply power to a cable company.
