Enel, Italy’s power utility, has committed to a €500m ($789m) joint venture to build Italy’s first offshore wind farm, involving the construction of 115 turbines off the southern waters off Sicily.
The project, whose design was submitted to the Italian government yesterday, aims to become operational by 2012 and is competing to become the Mediterranean’s first wind farm.
