Danish OEM manufacturer Vestas has received an order to supply turbines for a 144 MW wind project in Greece by Terna Energy and an 80 MW wind farm in the Netherlands from Euronext listed infrastructure investor, TINC.
For the Karystia wind project by Terna Energy, 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 stated that 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 per cent market share in the country.
The second wind farm Kroningswind is located on Goeree-Overflakkee in the South-West of the Netherlands.Vestas has developed a solution that comprises supply, installation and commissioning 19 V117-4.2 MW wind turbines and a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, capable of maximising the project’s annual energy production while meeting local restrictions at the site. The wind farm will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output. The order is adding to Vestas’ installed onshore wind power capacity of more than 2 GW in the country
