General Electric Co. (GE), the biggest U.S. maker of wind turbines, completed its second wind farm project in Turkey with Gama Holding AS.

The 10-megawatt Karadag farm in Izmir started generating electricity this month using four turbines, each with a 2.5- megawatt capacity, GE, based in Fairfield, Connecticut, said today in an e-mailed statement.

Turkey, seeking to get 30 percent of its power from renewables by 2023, is a “strategic growth area for GE,” according to the statement. The nation needs to meet electricity demand that’s increasing at about 6 percent a year, Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan said in June.
