Iberdrola announced this week that it is moving forward with the development of three wind farms in Greece and that it has signed an agreement with Vestas to supply a total of 102-MW of wind turbine capacity for its Askio II, Askio III and Rokani wind farms. The Rokani project, in the Viotia region, will install three EnVentus V162-6.0 MW turbines, the most powerful onshore wind turbine in the market. This will be the first time a turbine of that size will be used in the country.
The order also includes the supply and installation of twenty V150-4.2 MW for Askio II (33.6MW) and Askio III (50 MW) wind farms, located in Kozani, in the country’s north, as well as two Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreements for 5 and 10 years.
Vestas said turbine delivery will take place in the first half of 2022 and commissioning is scheduled for the second half of the same year, after which Iberdrola’s renewable energy capacity in Greece and Cyprus will reach 437 MW.
The three projects were awarded to Iberdrola in the renewable capacity auction organized by the Greek government in July 2020.
