Sep 18, 2019 – Enel Russia has started building wind turbine foundations for the future Azovskaya wind farm in the Rostov Region, the Investment Development Agency (AIR) of the region said.
The Azovskaya onshore wind farm with a capacity of 90 MW is to become Russia’s debut wind farm of such a scale. The power plant will be located in the Azov district of Russia’s Rostov region on the territory of the former gambling zone of Azov City.
Since the construction of the facility was recognized by the government as a significant investment project, the operator was provided with a land plot of 133 hectares for 10-year rent without auctions.
In June 2017, Enel Russia was awarded two wind projects for a total capacity of 291 MW within the framework of the 2017 Russian government tender for the construction of 1.9 GW of wind capacity in the country with an overall investment of 405 mln euros. One of the projects was the Azovskaya wind farm.
Construction began in September 2019, and is to be finished in 2020.
