LM Wind Power, a subsidiary of GE Renewable Energy, announced the start of production at its wind turbine blade factory in Turkey on Thursday.

The company invested $50 million in Turkey to establish the company, which will employ 450 technical personnel.

LM Wind Power will manufacture and distribute wind turbine blades at the factory with an anticipated annual output capacity of 500 megawatts.

The capacity of the factory can be increased to 1.5 gigawatts in the future, GE said.

As of the end of June, Turkey’s wind capacity totaled 6.1 gigawatts.

By 2023 the country aims to increase its capacity to 20 gigawatts.
