Vestas has received an order for the supply of 36MW of turbines from renewable energy projects developer Andali Energia.
Andali Energia has placed an order for the supply and installation of ten V136-3.6MW turbines for the 36MW Andali wind park located in the Calabria Region in Italy.
Andali Energia managing director Gaetano Canosinohas said: “I’m proud of my team; we have dedicated a lot of time and have spent a lot of energy to start this adventure. This goal represents the opportunity to improve our experience and to collaborate with primary suppliers in the wind energy market”.
Vestas Mediterranean Eastern Cluster general manager Rainer Karan said: “This project showcases, once again, that Vestas is the preferred supplier to compete in auctions. Our vast experience, in-depth customer knowledge and innovative technological solutions make Vestas the wind energy leader globally as well as in Italy. We are proud to work in close collaboration with customers like Andali Energia and we hope this contract becomes the beginning of a fruitful relationship.”
The project was awarded in the first Italian auction held in 2013. Turbine delivery and commissioning are planned for the second quarter of next year.
Since installing Italy’s first wind turbine in 1991, Vestas has installed more than 4GW of wind energy, representing over 40% of the country’s total wind capacity.
