Vestas receives order in Italy

28 March 2007 - The Vestas Group has received an order for a total of 55.5 MW for the Italian market. The order comprises three turnkey wind power plants.

Two of the wind power plants will be located on the island of Sicily and one in the Puglia region. In total, the order consists of 30 units of the V52-850 kW turbine and 15 units of the V80-2.0 MW turbine. All three wind power plants are expected to be fully commissioned by the end of 2006.

The order has been placed by Italian Vento Power Corporation (IVPC), who is responsible for the development of 38 per cent of the Italian electricity coming from wind energy. IVPC is a long-standing customer of Vestas and has an installed capacity of 661.42 MW in Italy, out of which Vestas has delivered 632 MW.

"The order is a confirmation of our long relationship with the IVPC Group which goes all the way back to 1998," says Paolo Tabarelli de Fatis, President of Vestas Mediterranean East A/S and continues: "IVPC is Italy's largest developer, and we are very satisfied with the loyalty shown towards Vestas and our products, which is seen as a result of good product quality combined with a continuous dialogue."

The three wind power plants will satisfy the energy needs of approx 95 000 Italian families and will save the environment of more that 61 000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
