Vestas 185 MW Greece

Vestas has announced that it has received orders for 185 MW of wind projects in Greece. Since Greece began its transition to an auction-based renewable energy system last year, the firm has won more of the auctioned capacity than any other solutions provider. And that leadership position has been further strengthened with the signing of these latest orders.

The first order has been received for 43 MW capacity for three wind parks in the country. The contract includes the supply and installation of 12 V136-3.6 MW for the Didima, Mavra Litharia and Dio Petres projects located in northern Greece.

The order has been placed by Pavlidis S.A., Greek marble and granite producer, and also comprises a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement. Turbine delivery is planned for the third quarter of 2020, whilst commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of the same year.

The second-order has been received for two new wind projects from Volterra. The company has placed a 54 MW order for 15 V117-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode for two wind parks in the Viotia region.

The order includes supply and installation of the turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. Turbine delivery is planned for the second and third quarter of 2020, whilst commissioning is planned for the second half of 2020.

The final order has been received from an undisclosed firm for an 88 MW wind park in Greece with a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement. For this order, Vestas has developed a solution that includes the supply and installation of 21 V136-4.2 MW turbines equipped with Vestas Anti-Icing System to optimise performance in the sites’ specific climatic conditions. This solution will minimise the risk of icing on the turbine blades, maximising energy production in cold climate conditions.

Turbine delivery is planned for the second quarter of 2020, whilst commissioning is planned for the second half of the same year.
