Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 12 units of the V112-3.3 MW wind turbine for the Cancellara wind project in the southern province of Basilicata, Italy. The 40 MW order for has been placed by Eolica Cancellara SRL, a subsidiary of Energreen Holding Italia Spa, which is part of a Luxembourg investment entity operating in the clean energy market.
The order comprises the supply, electrical works and installation of the wind turbines, including the electrical infrastructure of the wind farm, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement. Delivery of the wind turbines is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015, with commissioning planned for the first quarter of 2016.
Upon completion, the Cancellara wind power plant is expected to produce about 100,440 MWh annually, which corresponds to the residential electricity consumption of approximately 116,000 people in Italy. The V112-3.3 MW wind turbine is a variant of Vestas’ 3 MW platform aimed at improving energy production on high-wind sites.
“We have been present in Italy since 1991 and have installed almost 3.5 GW of wind power capacity in the country. We are pleased to partner for the first time with Energreen to take the Italian wind energy sector one step further. We look forward to a close collaboration from the earliest stages of the project through to completion”, says Marco Graziano, President of Vestas Mediterranean.
