Danish global leader in sustainable energy solutions Vestas will install 25 units of turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode 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. By using the V136-3.45 MW in its 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode, the project will exceed the initial target for performance and benefits”, says Apostolos Fragoulis, Technical Director of Greek Eltech Anemos S.A.
The contract comprises supply and installation of the wind turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service agreement to optimise 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. By introducing the V136-3.45 MW to the Greek market in 3.6 Power Optimised 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”, says President of Vestas Mediterranean Marco Graziano.
In 2015, Vestas signed the 40 MW Lyrkio project with Eltech Anemos S.A. and has in total installed around 1.3 GW of wind turbines in Greece.
During operation, wind power plants do not consume water nor do they emit climate-changing greenhouse gases. Wind power is among the solutions to the challenges the world is facing today.
