Eltech Anemos S.A. recently placed an order for 90 MW of V136-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW power optimized mode. The park will be the largest in Greece and the first in the country featuring the V136-3.45 MW.
Vestas will supply and install 25 turbines delivered in 3.6 MW power optimized mode. The turbines will be installed at the Kassidiaris wind park complex in the region of Epirus in northwestern Greece.
“Vestas has shown great understanding of the project’s specific requirements and provided their latest technology, solutions, and wind expertise to achieve the best returns,” said A. Fragoulis, technical director of Eltech Anemos S.A. “By using the V136-3.45 MW in its 3.6 MW power optimized mode, the project will exceed the initial target for performance and benefits.”
The contract comprises supply and installation of the wind turbines as well as a 20-year active output management 4000 (AOM4000) service agreement to optimize energy output at all times. Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2018.
“Building the largest wind park in Greece underlines Vestas’ market-leading position, and we are pleased to partner with Eltech Anemos S.A. once again for another landmark project,” said Marco Graziano, president of Vestas Mediterranean. “By introducing the V136-3.45 MW to the Greek market in 3.6 power optimized mode, we are also raising the bar for energy output in the market, and I am confident the Kassidiaris project will strengthen our partnership even further.”
In 2015, Vestas signed the 40 MW Lyrkio project with Eltech Anemos S.A. and has installed a total of about 1.3 GW of wind turbines in Greece.
