Enel SpA subsidiary Enel Green Power started building the 90-MW Azov wind facility in the Rostov region in southern Russia.
The project will be made up of 26 turbines and will cover 133 hectares. It is owned by Enel Russia and is estimated to cost €132 million, according to a May 23 news release.
Once it becomes operational by the end of 2020, the facility is expected to produce 320 GWh annually.
Enel Russia won the project contract for the Azov wind farm and the 201-MW Murmansk wind farm in the Russian government's 2017 tender for the construction of 1.9 GW of wind capacity. The Murmansk wind project is estimated to cost €273 million. Enel Green Power is overseeing the construction of both projects.
