French developer Total-Eren ordered 28MW from Vestas for the Flampouro wind park in northern Greece. With the last order received, Vestas’ total orders intake in Greece reached 250 MW in 2017.
The order made by Total-Eren includes supply and installation of two V117-3.45 MW wind turbines and six V126-3.45 MW turbines, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 4000 service contract, according to the company’s press release.
Flampouro is a village in the central part of Florina regional unit, also known for its motto, Where Greece begins.
Earlier in 2017 Vestas received an order for the largest wind park in Greece to date, the 90 MW Kassidiaris complex in the Epirus region, in northwestern part of the country. The order was to supply and install 25 units of V136-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6-MW power-optimized mode, the portal Wind Power Engineering portal wrote.
The contract signed last summer includes supply and installation of the wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management service agreement to optimize energy output at all times. It is expected that wind turbines for Kassidiaris will be delivered starting from the first quarter of 2018.
