Vestas has received a 31-MW order for the supply and installation of nine V117-3.45 MW turbines for an undisclosed project in Italy.
The project, which was won in Italy’s latest auction held in November 2016, takes Vestas’ order intake from the four Italian auctions since 2012 above 1 GW.
“The project takes Vestas past the 1-GW milestone for orders from Italian auctions, highlighting how our knowledge and expertise in auctions position Vestas as the wind energy leader in the country,” says Rainer Karan, General Manager of Vestas in Italy, Greece and the MENA region.
Wind turbine delivery is expected in the last quarter of 2018, with commissioning planned for the second quarter of 2019. Customer and project are undisclosed per the customer’s request.
