October 1 (Renewables Now) - Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) on Monday announced a turbine supply contract from Iberdrola SA (BME:IBE) for a 16-MW project in Greece.
The Spanish utility has ordered four units of the V150-4.2 MW turbines, which Vestas will deliver in a 4-MW operating mode and install at a site in Viotia region, central Greece. The auction-derived order, the value of which was not provided, covers the so-called Pyrgari wind project and also includes a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
The Pyrgari wind park will mark the first deployment of the V150-4.2 MW turbine in the Greek market, the Danish manufacturer said. It plans to deliver these turbines in the first quarter of 2020, while the commissioning of the wind park is scheduled for the following quarter.
The project was awarded in a domestic renewable energy tender in July 2018. It takes Vestas’ order intake in Greece to over 200 MW, the firm said.
