Vestas wins 26 MW order in Greece
The firm and unconditional order placed by CNI S.A is for a 26 MW wind park to be located in the Arcadia region in southern Greece. The contract comprises supply and installation of the wind turbines as well as a 15-year AOM 4000 service agreement to guarantee and optimise performance of the wind turbines. Turbine delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2017, whilst commissioning is expected in the second quarter of 2017.
According to Marco Graziano, President of Vestas Mediterranean, “This order is the result of a partnership with CNI S.A that has been evolving for the last five years and on which we look forward to continue building going forward. Vestas has been active in the Greek market for more than 10 years and will continue to be so in the years to come”.
Nikos Konstantopoulos, President of CNI S.A. says that “The Vestas Hellas team did well to find common ground and solutions during negotiations, and we are confident that project execution will also be carried out in the same spirit. The V112-3.3 MW Vestas model meets our expectations, and since we will continue to invest in the wind energy sector in Greece, we look forward to a long and fruitful co-operation with Vestas for projects to come”.
Vestas has delivered more than 1.1 GW of wind power capacity to Greece.
