Enel Green Power has begun construction of the Castelmauro wind farm in Molise. The plant will be built between the municipalities of Castelmauro and Roccavivara, in the province of Campobasso, and will consist of seven wind turbines of 4.2 MW each, for a total capacity of 29.4 MW. The wind farm is expected enter service by the end of 2021. The plant will produce around 70 GWh each year from renewable sources, corresponding to the supply of electricity for around 29,000 homes, avoiding the emission of approximately 36,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere per year.
Castelmauro is Enel Green Power’s second wind farm currently under construction among those awarded in recent GSE tenders after the Partanna facility in Sicily, which has been under construction since last August.
