Vestas announced that Terna Energy has placed a 144 MW order for the Karystia wind project in the prefecture of Evia, Greece.

Vestas said the contract includes the supply and installation of 40 V105-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

“We are collaborating with Terna Energy on the Karystia wind project, which enjoys one of the highest wind speeds in Greece. Our V105-3.45 MW wind turbine has a robust design, specifically created to optimise energy production in high wind conditions,” said  Marios Zangas, head of Vestas Hellas.

Turbine delivery is planned for the second and third quarter of 2021, whilst commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2022.

Vestas has done its first turbine installation in Greece in 1986. This new order consolidates the company’s position in the country with approximately 1.8 GW of wind turbines installed and close to 50 percent of market share.
