As an established platform for the development of wind projects in the region, the Powering Middle East Summit is pleased to welcome the global leader in wind technology, Vestas Wind Systems. President of Vestas Mediterranean, Marco Graziano, will participate in the Summit’s welcoming event to share his valuable insights and Vestas’ extensive experience in the wind energy sector.
Wind power offers a predictable and clean energy source that is fast to install and an increasingly attractive commercial opportunity for investors within the region. With a total installed capacity of 60 GW, Vestas’ 51,000 turbines currently generate sustainable energy in 73 countries across the globe.
Starting with a 55KW project in Egypt, Vestas has grown strongly, now with more than 170 turbines installed across the MENA region. In 2013, Vestas signed an agreement with Jordan Wind Project Company to build the first utility-scale wind power plant in Jordan. The Al-Tafila plant, expected to be commissioned in 2015, will be the largest wind project in the kingdom with a total capacity of 117 MWs.
“In an effort to expand its energy production beyond oil and gas, the Middle East is taking important steps to promote the use of clean energy in the region”, asserts Marco Graziano, President of Vestas Mediterranean. “At Vestas, we leverage our experience to develop efficient technologies that harvest the wind and improve the performance of our customers’ wind power plants worldwide. We are pleased to contribute with our unrivalled knowledge of wind technology with the aim of increasing our presence in the region”.
The Powering Middle East Summit looks forward to welcoming Marco Graziano and Vestas to Amman, Jordan, in September.
Registration for the Powering Middle East Summit will close at the end of August.
