Power Engineering – Ameresco Completes EPC Work on 9.2-MW Greek Island Wind Farm
U.S. renewable energy developer Ameresco has completed a utility-scale wind farm in a European nation which was the latest to announce its intention to pull away completely from coal-fired power.
The wind turbine project at Xerakia Dilinata in Kefalonia, Greece has been completed and is in operation. It is Ameresco’s first wind project in continental Europe.
The company was awarded design, build, operate and maintain duties for the wind farm by PPC Renewables SA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Greek power generation firm Public Power Corp.
Ameresco designed and constructed four 2.3-MW wind turbines to be operated under a 14-year fixed-price contract. The €9.8 million renewable energy project will supply clean energy to the area, ensuring that the island’s natural beauty and resources are preserved for future generations.
