Iberdrola advances in the development of renewable projects in Greece, within the framework of its strategy to combat climate change. It has signed a 102 MW turbine supply contract 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 turbines in the market to be used for the first time in Greece. 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 service agreements for 5 and 10 years.
Turbine delivery will take place in the first half of 2022 whilst commissioning is scheduled for the second half of the same year, after which Iberdrola's capacity in Greece and Cyprus will reach 437 MW.
The three projects were awarded to Iberdrola in the renewable capacity auction organised by the Greek government in July 2020. Through technological innovation and greater efficiency, the company is committed to develop competitive renewable energy, which is essential to advance in the energy transition towards a decarbonised model and combat climate change.
