Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order to supply and install 25 units of V136-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6-MW power-optimized mode. The turbines will be installed at the Kassidiaris wind park complex in the region of Epirus in northwestern Greece.

Fragoulis, Technical Director of Eltech Anemos S.A. “By using the V136-3.45 MW in its 3.6-MW power-optimized mode, the project will exceed the initial target for performance and benefits.”
The contract comprises of supply and installation of the wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service agreement to optimize energy output at all times. Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2018.
