The Castelmauro wind farm in Molise, Italy, has been commissioned by Enel Green Power.
Seven 4.2MW wind turbines make up the plant, which has a 29.4MW total capacity.
By using renewable energy, the new wind farm will generate around 70 GWh annually, saving 15 million cubic metres of gas and preventing the release of nearly 30,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Particularly for the civil works, services, and maintenance phases of the new plant’s construction, local businesses were involved.
Salvatore Bernabei, CEO of Enel Green Power, said “With the entry into operation of the Castelmauro wind farm, we are making a concrete contribution to the achievement of Italy’s decarbonisation objectives, also thanks to the collaboration with local institutions and the territory.”
“This, and the other new renewable plants we intend to build in Italy, will help accelerate the energy transition and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels, to the benefit of the environment, people, and the economy.”
