ERG, an Italian independent operator producing energy from renewable sources, recently placed a 101 MW order for the Mineo Militello Vizzini wind park in Sicily, Italy.
The contract includes the supply and installation of 24 V136-4.2 MW wind turbines as well as a multi-year active output management (AOM 5000) service agreement.
“We are very happy to announce our partnership with ERG for this project, which is the largest one we have signed in the last 15 years in Italy,” said Francesco Amati, Vestas Head of Italy. “This signature highlights the versatility of our 4-MW platform and adds more than 100 MW of clean energy to the Italian energy mix, supporting, once again, the country’s energy transition toward a more sustainable future.”
Turbine delivery is planned for the second quarter of 2023 while commissioning will take place in the second half of 2023.
The project adds to more than 5.4 GW wind turbines installed or under construction by Vestas in Italy, a market share of more than 40 percent.
