Italian onshore wind farm to be built by RWE Innogy

RWE Innogy is investing in its second onshore wind farm in Italy. The Ururi wind farm with a capacity of 26 MW will be built approx. 20 km southeast of the coast town of Termoli in the region of Molise. The Ururi wind farm is due to be commissioned by the end of 2010. The total of 13 wind turbines of the two MW class will be supplied by the Danish plant vendor Vestas. The investment in the wind farm will be made jointly by RWE Innogy Italia (51%) and Fri-El Green Power S.p.A. (49%).

The wind farm is expected to produce about 55 million KWh of electricity per year. The wind farm will be built by the project company Andromeda Wind Srl. with support by Fri-El S.p.A., the joint venture of RWE Innogy and the Italian wind farm operator and developer Fri-El Green Power.

The Ururi wind farm is the second wind farm to be installed by RWE Innogy jointly with Fri-El Green Power in Italy this year. At present, RWE Innogy is erecting a 24.65 MW wind farm on Sardinia, approx. 35 km north of the city of Cagliari.

RWE Innogy Italia has formed a joint venture for the development of wind and biomass projects in Italy with the Italian developer and operator of power plants based on renewable energies, Fri-El Green Power S.p.A. in Bolzano. RWE Innogy Italia and Fri-El Green Power each own 50 % of the development company Fri-El S.p.A. The joint venture aims to develop additional planned wind power and biomass projects to construction maturity.
