Vestas bags 16 MW turbine order from Iberdrola for Pyrgari wind park


Vestas said it has won a 16 MW auction-derived order from Iberdrola for the Pyrgari wind park located in Viotia, Greece.

Vestas said the wind turbine 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 was awarded in the renewable energy auction held in Greece in July 2018. Vestas has won more of the auctioned capacity than any other solutions provider. The Pyrgari wind park marks the debut for the V150-4.2 MW wind turbine in the Greek market, Vestas said.

“We believe that the project will benefit from the V150-4.2 MW turbine’s competitive Levelised Cost of Energy and its perfect fit with the site’s wind conditions,” says Marios Zangas, head of Vestas Hellas.

Vestas said it will deliver turbine in the first quarter of 2020, while commissioning will be in the second quarter of the same year.

This order takes Vestas’ order intake in Greece past 200 MW in this quarter and consolidates its more than 50 percent market share in country’s wind energy market.
