Enel Green Power broke ground at the Kolskaya wind project, located in the Russian region of Murmansk. With 201MW of installed capacity, the facility is the largest wind farm currently under construction beyond the Arctic Circle.
The project, owned by Enel Russia, will involve a total investment of around € 273 million. Enel Russia was awarded the 201 MW Kolskaya wind project in the 2017 Russian Government tender for the construction of 1.9GW of wind capacity in the country along with the 90MW Azov wind project, which is currently under construction and due to be commissioned at the end of 2020.
In June 2019 Enel Russia was awarded another wind project of over 71MW, Rodnikovsky wind farm, located in the Stavropol region, and due to be commissioned in the first half of 2024. Enel Green Power is in charge of the development and construction of all the projects. Enel Russia’s overall investment in the three facilities amounts to approximately € 495 million.
