Greek renewable power producer Terna Energy (ATH:TENERGY) has ordered 144 MW of turbines from Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) for the Karystia wind project.
The Danish turbine maker is to supply and install 40 units of V105-3.45 MW machines delivered in 3.6 MW power optimised mode and service the wind farm under a ten-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) agreement.
The Karystia wind farm will be located in Evia prefecture in an area that enjoys one of the highest wind speeds in Greece.
Vestas expects to deliver the turbines in the second and third quarter of 2021. Commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2022.
The Danish company said it installed its first turbine in Greece in 1986. Since then, Vestas has installed around 1.8 GW of wind turbines and has close to 50% market share in the country.
