Defective tensioner or pulleys, improper belt alignment, or even bad engine cam bearings causing belt stress.

Once saw a instruction in a Volkswagon manual that might be similar mention to install belt and take your thumb, place on pulley between belt and make half of the belt turn at right angle then tighten belt. Perhaps this might help. If not could be as other poster mentioned. Good Luck!
