The Kolskaya (earlier referred to as Murmanskaya) onshore wind farm will have an installed capacity of 201 MW making the facility the largest wind farm currently under construction beyond the Arctic Circle. It is located in Russia’s Murmansk region. The wind facility will consist of 57 turbines covering a 257-hectare area.
The wind project, owned by Enel Russia, will involve an overall investment of around 273 million euros. Enel Russia was awarded the Kolskaya wind project in the 2017 Russian government tender for the construction of 1.9 GW of wind capacity in the country along with the 90 MW Azovskaya wind project, which is currently under construction.
In September 2019, Enel Russia broke ground at the project. The wind farm is expected to be completed in 2021.
