Madrid, 30 September 2019
Vestas has won a 16 MW auction-derived order from Iberdrola for the Pyrgari wind park located in Viotía, Greece. The contract includes the supply and installation of four V150-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in 4.0 MW operating mode, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
The Pyrgari wind park, which was awarded in the renewable energy auction held in Greece in July 2018, reinforces Vestas’ leadership in the Greek auctions where it has won more of the auctioned capacity than any other solutions provider. The Pyrgari wind park also marks the debut for the V150-4.2 MW wind turbine in the Greek market.
Thanasis Tsantilas, Country Manager for Iberdrola Renewables Greece, said that in the new context of capacity auctions, there is an absolute need of design optimisation for maximum productivity and the most competitive capex. “Taking that into account, we believe that Vestas V150-4.2 MW turbines widely meet those needs”, he adds.
“We are very proud to have helped Iberdrola win this project and it underlines how our local experience and technology leadership enables us to successfully support our customers in the Greek auctions. We believe that the project will benefit from the V150-4.2 MW turbine’s extremely competitive Levelised Cost of Energy and its perfect fit with the site’s wind conditions”, says Marios Zangas, Head of Vestas Hellas.
Turbine delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2020, whilst commissioning is planned for the second quarter of the same year.
This order takes Vestas’ order intake in Greece past 200 MW in this quarter alone and consolidates its more than 50 percent market share in country’s wind energy market.
