Hamburg, 14 December 2022. The Nordex Group has received an order from Coca-Cola İçecek A.Ş. (“CCI”), for the supply and installation of CCI’s first wind turbine. The order for an N133/4800 turbine also includes a ten-year Premium Service.
The turbine with a nominal capacity of 4.8 MW will be installed on a tubular steel tower with a hub height of 110 meters near Çorlu in the province of Tekirdağ in Eastern Thrace in Türkiye in April 2023. By the end of the year, it will cover minimum of 30 % of the electricity requirements of the local bottling plant with green energy.
