Vestas turbine deal takes firm’s local orders for 2017 to nearly 250 MW

Vestas, a global partner for sustainable energy solutions, has received a 28-MW order from Total-EREN that adds to its strong order intake for 2017 in Greece, including an order concerning Greece’s largest wind park to date, the 90 MW Kasidiaris project, the company has announced in a statement. Company orders for Greece in 2017 reached nearly 250 MW.

Vestas has installed 1.3 GW of turbines in Greece, which represents more than half of the market’s total installed capacity.

The latest order, for the Flampouro project in central and northern Greece, includes supply and installation of two V117-3.45 MW turbines and six V126-3.45 MW turbines, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service contract, the company noted in the statement.

“The year 2017 was another record year for Vestas in Greece, not only because we have signed one of the largest wind parks to be built in Greece – Kasidiaris – but also because we have exceeded our own expectations for the year. This has only been possible thanks to the confidence our customers have placed in our people and our wind energy solutions,” commented Marios Zangas, Head of Vestas Greece.

Vestas designs, manufactures, installs and services wind turbines throughout the world. The company, whose total workforce exceeds 22,700 employees, has installed close to 86 GW of wind turbines in 76 countries. It applies industry-leading smart data capabilities to help to interpret, forecast, and exploit wind resources and deliver best-in-class wind power solutions.
