Vestas Finland project

Vestas today announced PLT Engineering has placed a 37 MW order for two projects in Italy.

Both projects, located in Calabria and Basilicata, will feature a mixed site configuration of both V110–2.0 MW and V136–4.2 MW wind turbines to optimise energy production.

The order includes supply and installation of the turbines as well as an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the next 15 years.

The energy produced by both wind parks will be commercialised through a PPA contract with PLT Puregreen for the next 12 years.

“These projects will allow us to produce clean energy, thus contributing to our goal of an increasingly decarbonised future,” said Stefano Marulli, sole administrator of PLT Engineering, said.

“This order showcases how the product diversity in Vestas’ growing portfolio can provide great flexibility and fit our customers’ different business cases,” says Vestas Vice President of Sales for Southern Europe and Turkey, Rainer Karan.

Since installing its first turbine in Italy in 1991, Vestas has led the country’s wind industry with over 4.3 GW capacity installed, being the main contributor to the country’s expansion of wind energy with a 40 percent market share.

Vestas said turbine delivery is planned for the second half of 2020, while commissioning is expected by the fourth quarter 2020.
