Vestas has won a 106 MW order for several sites in Greece, the Danish manufacturer of wind turbines has said in a press release, without disclosing the customer and projects per the customer’s request.

More specifically, the order includes the supply and installation of 14 V136-4.2 MW, five V136-3.6 MW and eight V117-3.6 MW turbines, Vestas said in the press release.

To optimize the wind energy solution to the sites’ specific climatic conditions, some of the V136-4.2 MW turbines will be equipped with Vestas’ Anti-Icing System, which efficiently minimizes ice formation on blades to maximize energy production in cold climate, the press release reads.

Targeting icing only where and when it is needed minimizes the system’s power consumption and maximizes the effective climatic operating range, according to Vestas’ website. The Vestas Anti-Icing System is also available for V150-4.2 MW.

“Leveraging our ability to develop site-specific solutions and our competitiveness in the new auction system have been key factors in winning this order. Together with local partners, we are breaking new grounds for wind energy in Greece highlighted by the fact that we for the first time are able to apply our expertise in cold climate solutions in a Mediterranean country like Greece,” said Marios Zangas, Head of Vestas Hellas.

Besides the supply and installation of the wind turbines, the contract also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement. Turbine delivery is planned for the second and third quarter of 2019, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2019.

Vestas pioneered the Greek wind market in 1986 and since then it has installed around 1.4 GW of wind turbines. This new order reinforces the company’s leading position in the market with more than 50% of market share, according to the news release.
