Vestas has achieved 3000MW of installed capacity in Italy, which accounts for 40% of the total installed wind energy in the country and 25% of its renewable energy obligation under EU 2020 targets.

According to the President of the Italian Wind Energy Association (ANEV), Simone Togni, “this is another important milestone for wind energy in Italy and a source of hope for the entire sector in these difficult times.” During the last 14 years, Vestas has sold, installed and serviced turbines in central and southern Italy, as well as in regions where wind power plants had never been installed before, such as Valle D’Aosta. Vesta’s turbines range from V27 – 225 kW to V100-1.8 MW in the Santa Luce wind farm, V100-2.6 MW in Orta Nova and the recent new order the company has received of V112-3.0 MW turbines, for the Gorgoglione Guardia Perticara project, the first in the country with this type of wind turbines. Wind farms installed have helped to diversify the energy mix of the country, creating a highly specialized supply chain and also new jobs.
