E.ON starts construction of 57MW wind farm in Morcone, Italy

Published 20 February 2018

German utility E.ON has begun construction of a new 57MW wind farm in Italy, known by the name Morcone project, which is located in the Benevento province in the wider area of Naples.

Nineteen turbines of the three-megawatt class from the Danish manufacturer Vestas will be installed. Morcone was the largest project awarded by the Italian government at an auction in 2016.

E.ON is currently building the roads and laying the foundations for the first wind turbines in the mountainous terrain around the communities of Morcone and Pontelandolfo.

In the summer, the turbines will be installed, which will finally go into operation at the beginning of 2019.

In Italy, E.ON owns and operates ten onshore wind farms with a total capacity of around 330MW. The plants are located in the regions of Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata, Sardinia, Tuscany and Campania.

In addition, E.ON also offers full service for wind farms owned by other operators.
