After successfully commissioning the Selinus wind farm in 2022, RWE continues its wind energy endeavors in Italy with its investment decision to construct two new onshore wind farms in the Apulia region.
With a combined capacity of 108 megawatts (MW), the San Severo project in San Severo Municipality and the Mondonuovo project in Mesagne Municipality have secured building permits. The total investment for these ventures amounts to approximately €180 million.
This project has an installed capacity of 54 MW and is situated in San Severo Municipality, Foggia Province. It will include the commissioning of 12 turbines, each with a capacity of 4.5 MW, and slated to be completed by the end of 2024. Construction is scheduled to commence in Autumn.
Brindisi Province will be home to a 54 MW wind project in Mesagne Municipality. This venture will include the installation of 9 turbines, each with a capacity of 6 MW. Scheduled to commence at the beginning of 2024, the project aims for mid-2025 commissioning.
Katja Wünschel, CEO RWE Renewables Europe & Australia, said, “We at RWE are excited to have two major onshore wind farms ready to be built in our key market Italy. San Severo and Mondonuovo will make the best use of wind in Italy to drive forward the energy transition. This is a big step on our way to reach 1 gigawatt of Renewables capacity in Italy.”
