The Vestas Group’s positive expectations for the Italian market have been confirmed by receipt of orders for a total of 36 units of the V80-2.0MW wind turbine. The turnkey orders have been placed by a joint venture between the Italian developer Fri-El GreenPower and companies of the French EDF Group. The contracts comprise turbines, monitoring system, transport, installation and commissioning, as well as electrical and civil infrastructure. The turbines will be installed in 2005 and 2006 in four adjacent wind parks. The wind parks, which will have a combined capacity of 72MW, are located in the Puglia region, in the south of Italy. The four sites stretch over the commune of Sant’Agata di Puglia.
