Long-standing Vestas customer Fri-El Spa recently placed two new orders for the installation of 51 MW in Italy, through its subsidiaries Fri-El Albareto S.R.L and Green Energy Sardegna S.R.L. Both projects were awarded at the 800 MW auction held in Italy in late 2016.
Located in Emilia Romagna, the Albareto project comprises supply and installation of six, V117-3.3 MW turbines.
The Medio Campidano wind-power project will consist of 14, V110-2.0 MW turbine delivered in 2.2 MW Power Optimized Mode to generate the maximum amount of power possible in the site’s low-wind conditions.
“Vestas’ broad range of auction-related capabilities and Fri-El Spa’s trust in us allowed us to enter the negotiation early in the process, which proved to be the key differentiator in building a winning bid at the auction,” said General Manager for Vestas in Italy, Greece and the MENA region, Rainer Karan.
The orders also include a two-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service contract. Turbine delivery for both projects is expected in the fourth quarter of 2018.
