Vestas wins contract to build largest wind farm in Greece
July 17, 2017 – Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has been awarded a contract by Eltech Anemos to supply and install 25 turbines to develop the largest wind farm in Greece.
Under the contract, Vestas will supply 25 units of V136-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6MW Power Optimised Mode.
The turbines will be installed at the Kassidiaris wind park complex in the region of Epirus in northwestern Greece.
The scope of the contract includes supply and installation of the wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service agreement to optimise energy output at all times.
Vestas will start the delivery of the wind turbines in the first quarter of 2018.
Eltech Anemos technical director A Fragoulis said: “Vestas has shown great understanding of the project’s specific requirements and provided their latest technology, solutions and wind expertise to achieve the best returns.
“By using the V136-3.45 MW in its 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode, the project will exceed the initial target for performance and benefits.”
Vestas Mediterranean president Marco Graziano said: “Building the largest wind park in Greece underlines Vestas’ market-leading position and we are pleased to partner with Eltech Anemos S.A. once again for another landmark project.
“By introducing the V136-3.45 MW to the Greek market in 3.6 Power Optimised Mode, we are also raising the bar for energy output in the market and I am confident the Kassidiaris project will strengthen our partnership even further.”
