Iberdrola has commissioned the Askio II wind farm in Greece which is located in the provinces of Kozani and Eordaia, in the West Macedonia region of Greece.  It joins the 50.4 MW Askio III project in full operation, which was completed last year. Askio II consists of nine Vestas V150 wind turbines, each with a 4.2 MW capacity, a hub height of 105 metres and a rotor diameter of 150 metres. Both Askio projects are connected to the same grid point, with a combined annual production of around 180GWh anticipated. 

The Askio projects have been built in a mountainous region at an altitude of 1,500 metres above sea level. In order to navigate the narrow and steep roads, blade lifter technology was required. This involves a specialist trailer which can rotate and vertically tilt the blades during transport, ensuring the components could be moved along existing narrow roads, and avoiding the need for any additional construction work.

Iberdrola also announced the commissioning of the 18-MW Rokani wind farm located in the Viotia region, Central Greece which is equipped with 3 Vestas V162 turbines of 6 MW unit capacity. With ab hub hjeight of 205 metres, they are the largest and most powerful wind turbines in operation in Greece so far.
