Vestas Wins 40-Megawatt Turbine Order for Wind Farm in Italy

(Bloomberg) — Vestas Wind Systems A/S, the world’s largest
turbine maker, agreed to supply equipment with 40 megawatts of
capacity for a project in southern Italy.

Vestas will begin delivering the 12 3.3-megawatt turbines
to Energreen Holding Italia Spa in the fourth quarter, the
Aarhus, Denmark-based manufacturer said in a statement on its
website Thursday. The sale includes a 10-year service agreement.
Terms weren’t disclosed.

The Cancellara wind project in Basilicata province is
expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2016 and will
produce enough power for about 116,000 people, according to the
statement.

Vestas has installed almost 3.5 gigawatts of capacity in
Italy since 1991.
