Vestas announced that Mytilineos has placed a 43 MW order for the Makrynoros wind park, located in Central Greece.

The contract includes the supply and installation of 12 V136-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW operating mode, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement, Vestas said.

“It is the seventh cooperation between our companies, for a total of 172 MW. This by itself, proves the trust we put in Vestas, as one of the main strategic partners of Mytilineos,” said Dinos Benroubi, general manager of Mytilineos’ Business Unit Power and Gas.

The Makrynoros wind park, awarded in the wind energy tender held in July 2019, reinforces Vestas’ leadership in the Greek auctions, where it has won more auctioned capacity than all other solutions providers combined.

Vestas Hellas head Marios Zangas said turbine delivery is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021, whilst commissioning is expected to begin in June 2022.

Vestas said this new order also consolidates the company’s leading position in the country with over 1.9 GW of wind turbines installed and more than 43 percent of market share.
