SIMIC, an engineering and construction company based in Italy, has awarded Vestas a 74 MW order for EnVentus wind turbines for Villacidro and Musei wind parks in Sardinia. 

The contract is for the supply and installation of 12 V162-6.2 MW wind turbines, along with a 20-year service agreement (20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000)). Turbine delivery is scheduled for the first half of 2024, and commissioning is slated for the second half of the same year. 

In 2021, SIMIC placed the first order with Vestas for EnVentus wind turbines in Italy.

This project solidifies Vestas’ prominent position in the Italian market, where it has secured contracts over 2 GW from various auctions and has installed more than 5 GW since 1991.

“With Villacidro and Musei wind parks, SIMIC achieves an important milestone of more than 100 MW of solar and wind installed capacity and confirms its commitment to energy transition and sustainability”, says Giuseppe Ginola, Founder and Managing Director of SIMIC.
