Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for the 48 MW Petalas wind park in the region of Aitoloakarnania in western Greece. The order comprises 24 V100-2.0 MW turbines and was placed by Protergia S.A., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mytilineos Holdings S.A.
The contract includes supply and installation of the wind turbines as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service agreement to maximise energy production at all times. Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2017.
“We are very happy to work once again, together with Vestas, on a large wind park in Greece. Petalas is the sixth consecutive cooperation between our companies, totalling 130 MW. Our continued cooperation clearly proves the trust we put in Vestas, as one of the main strategic partners of Protergia”, claims Dinos Benroubi, CEO of Protergia.
“Protergia S.A. is a key customer and we are pleased to partner with them once again and reinforce our market-leading position in the country. Greece is increasingly betting on wind and with the efficient and reliable energy our solutions provide, Vestas is taking a key role in the country’s transition to a sustainable energy mix”, says President of Vestas Mediterranean Marco Graziano.
Vestas pioneered the Greek wind market in 1986 and has since then installed around 1.3 GW of wind turbines in Greece.
