Vestas has won a turbine order totalling 144MW with Terna Energy for the Karystia wind farm in Greece.

The contract includes the supply and installation of 40 V105-3.45MW machines delivered in 3.6MW power optimised mode, as well as a 10-year active output management 5000 service agreement.

Delivery is planned for the second and third quarter of 2021, while commissioning is scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.

Karystia is located in the prefecture of Evia, Vestas said.

Vestas Hellas head Marios Zangas said: “We are proud to collaborate with Terna Energy on the Karystia wind project, which enjoys one of the highest wind speeds in Greece.

“Our V105-3.45MW wind turbine has an extremely robust design, specifically created to optimise energy production in high wind conditions.

“With this technology, we expect the wind park to make a significant contribution to the country’s energy transition.”

Vestas said the new order consolidates the company’s position in the country with approximately 1.8GW of wind turbines installed and close to 50% of market share.
