Leading Italian wind developer IVPC has turned to Vestas, its traditional turbine supplier, for 102 MW in turbines to be used on projects in the southern Italian regions of Molise and Apulia. A total of 26, 1.8 MW turbines and five 3 MW machines will be used on a 62 MW wind farm in Ascoli Satriano in the province of Foggia in Apulia. Twenty Vestas 2 MW machines will be used on a 40 MW project in Molise stretching over the municipalities of Montorio, Montelongo and Rotello. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Turbine delivery is set to begin in the second half of 2009, with both projects set to be completed by year-end. Aside from the Molise and Apulia wind farms, IVPC is also constructing a 45.6 MW wind farm in Giarratana on the island of Sicily and an 18 MW project in Calabria in the towns of San Floro and Caraffa in Catanzaro. IVPC says it has a 900 MW development pipeline in Italy.
