110-TON GIANT TURBINE
Yesterday, Erdoğan first paid a visit to energy firms operating out of the Xinjiang Autonomous Region, including the TBEA wind and solar energy systems firm, where Erdoğan was briefed by authorities. Later, Erdoğan visited Goldwind, a firm which produces giant wind turbines spanning 100-meters in length and 113-meters in width, weighing 110 tons, where the prime minister invited firm authorities to invest in Turkey. Commenting on his visit, Erdoğan stated, "Hopefully we have received their promise to invest, I hope that this sort of investment takes place." While he was touring the factory, Erdoğan was shown a model wind turbine, upon which he joked, will you be giving me one of these? I have three grandchildren at home." In the end, Erdoğan and those in his committee were given gifts of model turbines, which they displayed while being photographed by the press upon their exit. When asked by journalists if there was a specific area determined for wind turbines, Erdoğan responded by stating, "There are a lot of places." Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yıldız stated, "Our mapping for wind energy is ready."
