News release from Vestas Mediterranean
Madrid, 31 March 2022
ERG has placed a 97 MW order for the repowering of the existing Camporeale project and for the new Roccapalumba wind park, both located in Sicily, Italy. The contract includes the supply and installation of 12 V117-4.2 MW wind for the 50 MW Camporeale wind park, and 13 V117-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW power optimised mode for the 47 MW Roccapalumba project.
The contract also includes the maintenance of the wind turbines under a multi-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement.
“These projects are a great example of Vestas’ versatility when it comes to providing sustainable energy solutions in any kind of project, either establishing new wind projects or repowering existing wind turbines. Furthermore, the Camporeale project is an excellent example of how repowering is also driving the clean energy transition by exchanging older wind turbines with more advanced technology. Together with the customer we managed to drastically increase the efficiency of the project in terms of clean energy production at a lower cost, with the same site impact. We are proud to drive the Italian energy transition hand-in-hand with our long-term partner, ERG”, says Vestas Head of Italy, Francesco Amati.
The projects were awarded at the seventh auction round held in Italy in 2021. Vestas has secured more than 1.7 GW of contracts from the energy auction system in Italy, where it has installed over 4.7 GW since 1991, accounting for a market share of more than 40 percent.
Turbine delivery for both projects is planned by the first quarter of 2023 whilst commissioning will take place in the second quarter of 2023.
