Vestas has secured a 28 MW order from the AM Energie Rinnovabili for the Serra del Vento project, located in the Palermo province. The order includes the supply and installation of eight V136-3.45 MW wind turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

This order adds to the more than 1.1 GW of contracts signed by Vestas in Italy’s auction system, which showcases the company’s ability to support customers in submitting winning auction bids. The order also reinforces Vestas’ leadership in the country’s wind energy sector, where it has installed more than 4.3 GW since 1991, accounting for a 40 percent market share.

“I would like to thank AM Energie Rinnovabili for placing their trust in Vestas’ technology for the first time. Our cutting-edge technology together with our long term service offering provides a highly competitive levelised cost of energy. This LCoE allows our customers to optimise their business case certainty, which is key to successfully compete in the auctions”, says Vestas Vice President of Sales Region South Europe and Turkey, Rainer Karan.
