Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has received a firm and unconditional order to equip a 48-MW wind farm in western Greece, the Danish wind turbine manufacturer said Tuesday.
The contract for the supply and installation of 24 pieces of Vestas’ V100-2.0 MW turbines comes from local firm Protergia SA, part of industrial conglomerate Mytilineos Holdings SA. The machines will power the Petalas wind park in the region of Aitoloakarnania.
Vestas expects delivery to start in the last quarter of 2017. The deal also includes a 10-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service contract in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance.
"Petalas is the sixth consecutive cooperation between our companies, totalling 130 MW," said Dinos Benroubi, CEO of Protergia.
According to the announcement, Vestas has supplied and installed 1.3 GW of wind turbines in Greece.
