Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has received its first Italian order for its V100 turbine.
The company will supply 11 of the V100-1.8 MW turbines, representing a total capacity of 19.8 MW, for the Santa Luce Wind Power Plant Tuscany.
The contract comprises delivery, transportation, installation and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 15-year service and maintenance agreement.
The order has been placed by Santa Luce, a special purpose company of wind power developer Fera.
Fera has previously developed other wind power plants in Italy with Vestas technology with a total installed capacity of approximately 45 MW.
Delivery of the first turbines for Santa Luce is expected soon and the project is due to be operational by the end of the year.
