Italian renewable energy group Falck Renewables has begun commercial operation of the first group of turbines at its 138 MW Buddosò and Alà dei Sardi wind farm inSardinia.
Falck Renewables said the wind farm will rank as Italy’s largest wind power plant when fully operational later this year and should produce 330 GWh of electricity annually. It will comprise 69. 2 MW turbines from German manufacturer Enercon
The project, which last year received a €230 million project financing loan, is expected to generate annual revenues of €50 million. Falck now has about 526 MW of installed RE capacity, primarily in wind energy, and is aiming at 1.1 GW by end-2014.
