Scope of the order includes a 15-year service and maintenance agreement under active output management scheme alongside the delivery, transportation, installation and commissioning of the turbines.
Commenting on the order Vestas Italia general manager Rainer Karan expressed confidence in the company being able to deliver high efficiency turbines to the region to ensure cleaner energy for the inhabitants.
Vestas Wind Systems chief sales officer Juan Araluce added, "With its outstanding annual energy production, the V112-3.0 MW delivers the best possible returns at medium and low wind sites at a low cost of energy."
The company will commence delivery of the turbines at the beginning of 2013 with the project expected to commence commercial operations by the end of March.
