Vestas has won 144 MW wind turbine order from Terna Energy for the Karystia wind project in the prefecture of Evia, Greece. The scope of work includes supply and installation of 40 V105-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW power optimised mode, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Wind turbine major Vestas has won 144 MW wind turbine order from Greek renewable energy company Terna Energy for the Karystia wind project in the prefecture of Evia, Greece.
The scope of work includes supply and installation of 40 V105-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW power optimised mode, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
Commenting on the development, Marios Zangas, Head of Vestas Hellas, said, “we are proud to collaborate with TERNA ENERGY on the Karystia wind project, which enjoys one of the highest wind speeds in Greece. Our V105-3.45 MW wind turbine has an extremely robust design, specifically created to optimise energy production in high wind conditions. With this technology, we expect the wind park to make a significant contribution to the country’s energy transition.”
Turbine delivery is planned for the second and third quarter of 2021, whilst commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2022.
The company has pioneered the Greek wind market with its first turbine installation in 1986 and this year marks the 20th anniversary of it’s official establishment in the country.
Recently, the company has bagged 46 MW order of 4 MW platform turbine components that qualify for 60 per cent PTC value from an undisclosed customer. Further, these components will enable future wind energy projects that complete construction by the end of 2024.
Also, the PTC terms set in the PATH act, passed by Congress in 2015, made the wind industry the first energy industry to agree to permanent tax reform and have resulted in billions of dollars in wind energy investment in the US, including expansions in domestic manufacturing and supply chain, construction, transportation, tax revenue to local communities, and the addition of tens of thousands of jobs across the wind value chain.
