Gok II gets under way with GE turbs

GAMA Enerji has reached financial closure and completed the first drawdown for a 35MW wind farm in Turkey employing GE turbines.
Financing for the Gök II wind park was obtained in July through a loan agreement with TSKB in Istanbul.
GAMA Enerji A.S is a joint venture between GAMA Holding and GE Energy Financial Services.
The project will reach commercial operation in 2014, with GE supplying 13, 2.75-103 wind turbines.
The units have higher towers and greater hub heights than previous models, resulting in greater power output, according top GE.
GAMA Enerji A.S board member and CEO Arif Ozozan said: “The 13 units’ power curve will allow Gök II to capture the most wind and provide much-needed additional electricity for Turkey.”
Turkey, with a prospective wind generation capacity of about 48,000MW, has set a target of generating 20,000 MW of wind energy by 2023.
