Vestas gets 48MW Italy order

Vestas has won a 48MW deal to supply its V117 wind turbines to two projects in Turkey.

Vestas will deliver six V117-3.0 MW and nine V117-3.3 MW machines to the wind farms in Basilicata.

The order is from Asja Ambiente Italia, which is due to take delivery of the turbines in the third quarter of the year, with commissioning expected by the end of 2014.

The deal includes a 10-year service agreement.

The order is the first for the V117 to be placed in Italy, said the Danish wind group.
