RWE announces full operation of largest onshore wind farm in Italy


RWE has announced the commercial operation of its largest onshore wind energy project in Italy.

The 57MW wind farm has 95 turbines, with a height of 140 meters, and will generate enough energy to power 65,000 homes per year.

The construction of the wind farm started in 2018 in Morcone and the plant has been partially operating since June 2019.

The wind farm expands RWE’s total onshore wind energy capacity in Italy to around 440 MW.

Anja-Isabel Dotzenrath, CEO of RWE Renewables, said: “The Morcone site represents another step to strengthen our position as a leading producer of renewable energy. It is our largest onshore wind farm in terms of capacity in Italy.

“Italy is one of our core markets for wind energy. The country is seeing continued expansion of renewables and we are happy to contribute to this development.“
